The annual Rev. J. Donald Monan, SJ, Lecture Series on Higher Education at Boston College will feature talks this fall by author and former Smith College President Jill Ker Conway and Robert Zemsky, a pioneer in contemporary higher education trends.

Conway, author of The Road from Coorain and currently a visiting professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, will speak on "What's an Undergraduate Education Today, and Why Does It Cost So Much?" on Tuesday, Sept. 30.

On Tuesday, Oct. 14, Zemsky, CEO of The Learning Alliance, will present "To Dance with Change."
