In the face of disruptive forces, what can higher education do to ensure its relevance, and how has Boise State attempted to position itself for the next 5, 10 or 20 years? At this forum, Gordon Jones, founding Dean of the College of Innovation and Design, will share his thoughts and reflections in this time of rapid change. Following his remarks, Gordon will respond to audience questions.

Hired as the inaugural Directo in 2011, he launched the i-lab as a new model of student learning. Gordon graduated with a BA from Brown University and earned an MBA from Stanford University Graduate School of Business.
