Bush higher ed conference ends in Irving

IRVING, Texas (AP) — A higher education conference organized by former governors Jeb Bush of Florida and Jim Hunt of North Carolina wraps up two days of talks in North Texas.

Panel discussions are scheduled for Tuesday at the Globalization of Higher Education Conference in Irving. Bush and Hunt will participate in an afternoon discussion that also will include Rice University President David Leebron.

The conference drew nationwide attention as Bush and former Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton both said higher education has the power to transform lives and be a force for democracy around the globe. Both are potential rivals in the 2016 presidential contest.
