What Does the Future Hold for UC Davis?

It’s tough to forecast the future without a crystal ball, but some in our community are willing to give it a try. According to UC Davis Magazine, last fall:

Provost and Executive Vice Chancellor Ralph J. Hexter…joined seven other representatives of the UC Davis community…to discuss the future of our university. For about an hour, these campus leaders, administrators, alumni, faculty, staff…engaged in a spirited conversation about the chancellor’s vision, and our university’s aspirations, opportunities and challenges. [The] eight panelists peered into the future: What will our student body look like? What will our campus look like? How will faculty teach? And how will UC Davis set the standard by which other universities are measured in the years to come?

They came up with some very interesting ideas and insights. If you are trying to decide whether UC Davis would be the right fit for your academic ambitions, or if you’re just curious about what the future might hold, we recommend this edited transcript of the conversation.
