Artificial-intelligence tools are growing more powerful and prevalent in how we work. There is plenty of speculation about how those innovations will affect the work force in the future, but what unique opportunities and challenges do they present to higher education?

To explore the areas of opportunity and concern, The Chronicle has welcomed a panel of higher-ed leaders to share their insights on the future of AI in institutional practices and policy. In this hourlong discussion, you will discover how novel technologies will affect admissions, student-job prospects, the academic work force, and much more.
