May 16-17, 2019 Loma Pelona Center and the UCen (Harbor Room)
Metrics are transforming higher education. The Disquantified conference explores how they are changing teaching, research, and governance in universities. Our questions include:
- Are wage data influencing how students choose majors?
- Are faculty teaching differently as assessment becomes learning analytics?
- Have performance indicators changed public funding and oversight?
- Given these trends, how might faculty, students, and staff respond?
Please join us as we host an interdisciplinary cast of scholars for lively discussion about how we can use (and when we should reject) higher education metrics. Our goal is to make the university a more exciting, energizing, and equitable place. Faculty, students, and staff members from all disciplines are welcome.

We hope to see you there!
