America's Imagination Summit at Lincoln Center spotlights the role of imagination in education

As President of Post University's Online Education Institute, I was delighted to be invited to America's Imagination Summit at Lincoln Center in New York City today and tomorrow. My participation reflects the university's commitment to innovation, creativity, and imagination in higher education, and a deep interest in being part of a national dialogue about, and commitment to, these values.

America's Imagination Summit is the first national gathering on the place of imagination in education. Leaders from business, government, education, science, the arts, and other fields will commit to giving American students the tools they need for success in the 21st century: imagination, creativity, and innovation.

Lincoln Center Institute, the educational arm of Lincoln Center and the event's host, believes this diverse coalition is capable of influencing schools and bringing about education policy change.

Among the speakers and panelists at the summit are:
