Bush spoke Tuesday at the end of a two-day conference on higher education he organized with former North Carolina Gov. Jim Hunt in the Dallas suburb of Irving.
He told those gathered at the Globalization of Higher Education conference they have the chance to use the opportunities offered in a "globalized world with accelerating technology" to transform their institutions.
Bush is considered a potential candidate for president in 2016, along with former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, who spoke at the conference Monday.
