We’re pleased to feature this Q&A with Council on Foreign Relations President Richard Haass on key issues in foreign affairs, globalization, higher education and his latest book, The World: A Brief Introduction.
Haass spoke with NEBHE President and CEO Michael K. Thomas and NEJHE Executive Editor John O. Harney on Monday, July 28, 2021, via Zoom.
Among Haass’s mantras: “Universities have departments but the world doesn’t.” He believes in interdisciplinary thinking. And he believes higher education is ripe for disruption.
