Connections: Re-imagining the University of Rochester

Connections_News_Highlight.jpg

"Why not take a blank piece of paper and think about how best to conduct education?” That question comes from a new team at the University of Rochester charged with re-imagining the university. Project Imagine is considering changes to the academic calendar, a reorganization from traditional departments and colleges to interdisciplinary centers, and other big ideas. Project Imagine co-leader Dr. Ray Dorsey says now is a good time to go back to square one and explore if there are better ways to operate beyond the pandemic.

The committee is looking for community feedback and ideas. We explore some of them and invite listeners to weigh in with our guests:

  • Dr. Ray Dorsey, M.D., David M. Levy Professor of Neurology and director of the Center for Health and Technology at the University of Rochester Medical Center
  • Julia Maddox, director of the Barbara J. Burger iZone at the University of Rochester Libraries
