Charting the Course: Earl V. Pullias Lecture Series on the Future of Higher Education. Twenty-Sixth Annual. Fall 2003
Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis, University of Southern California
Although there is a great deal of disagreement about how to handle the changes that confront postsecondary education, few will suggest that being wedded to the status quo is sufficient. Many contend that the future of higher education is up for grabs; how those of us in the "industry" respond will determine whether American higher education remains the envy of the world. In order to come to grips with some of the problems confronting academe, the Center for Higher Education Policy Analysis invited three eminent scholars to discuss the future of higher education for the twenty-sixth Pullias Lecture Series. This publication presents these papers: (1) The Fiscal Future of Higher Education: Austerity and Accessibility (D. Bruce Johnstone); (2) "And the Last Shall Be First": Racial Diversity, Distributive Justice, and Affirmative Action (Walter R. Allen); and (3) Taking Student Learning Seriously: Rethinking the University of the Future (Vincent Tinto). Individual papers contain tables, references and footnotes.
