Insights into the Future of Higher Education in the United States: A Meta-Analysis of Issues in the Literature and Results of a Survey of Administrators and Political Officers.
Basom, Margaret; Sherritt, Caroline
This paper discusses the current crisis in higher education in the United States, in regard to decreasing resources, access, equity, societal role, accountability, and public trust. It also reports on a survey of five higher education administrators and five state government education officials that sought to determine what they believed would be the major political and economic issues facing higher education in the next century. The survey participants identified 20 political and economic problems that higher education will face in coming years. It found little difference between the opinions of the educators and officials surveyed and scholars writing about such issues. It also found that there was a consensus among scholars and survey participants that although technology is a panacea for many problems afflicting higher education, there is a lack of direction for applying such technology effectively.
