Education and Society Program


The Aspen Institute Education & Society Program is dedicated to improving public education in the United States. Our vision is that public education affords every student the opportunities and experiences they need to actively participate in civic life, thrive in the world of work and develop a healthy sense of self, which contributes to social justice and shared economic prosperity.

Our off-the-record venues create safe spaces for candid conversations and authentic learning. These convenings lead to deep connections and actionable insights that galvanize education leaders to advance bipartisan solutions for the most pressing issues facing public education.
