(in Shanghai) Conversations with President Robert J. Zimmer and Dean John W. Boyer

All day


University of Chicago alumni, parents and friends joined President Robert J. Zimmer for a discussion about the ideas, people and discoveries that shape the University and inform its impact on the global community.  The University has outlined an ambitious agenda that will influence the future of science, the arts, global engagement, and education.

Immediately preceding the Conversation with President Zimmer, Dean John W. Boyer, AM’69, PhD’75, described efforts in the College that have led to national recognition for the quality of the undergraduate experience and have resulted in a record number of applications for admissions. He highlighted UChicago’s ambitious plans to further strengthen the academic enterprise, increase financial aid, help students transition to life after graduation, and enable more students to engage communities beyond our campus—in Chicago, the nation and the world.
