David Staley, EDUCAUSE Review

As artificial intelligence moves us to a world without work, what does that mean for higher education institutions and their mission in the new economy? But if predictions of a world without work come to pass, the link between higher education and job preparation will be torn apart.  As a result, higher education will become unnecessary for many. A small number of institutions of higher learning might remain, as places where students go to engage their minds, but many colleges and universities will be shuttered if a central core of their mission has been eliminated. Higher education would return to its pre–Morrill Act status as a leisure activity for the few.
