Abstract : This USAF Academy strategic planning conference focused on the future or learning and teaching to help shape the educational architecture of the Academy. Proceedings summarize discussions between faculty and colleagues from other service academies, civilian colleges and universities, and industry. Eight plenary addresses, four working groups, and 14 concurrent sessions (workshops) are summarized. Highlights include the keynote address by the Honorable Sheila E. Widnall, Secretary of the Air Force and the USAFA Outstanding Educator Award Ceremony address by playwright, performer, and educator Len Barron. Proceedings represent the current thinking of a number of well-placed individuals attempting to anticipate the future, both of higher education and of the larger world in which service academy, college, and university graduates will have to work.
