Higher Education Exchange, 2014

Research shows that not only does higher education not see the public; when the public, in turn, looks at higher education, it sees mostly malaise, inefficiencies, expense, and unfulfilled promises. Yet, the contributors to this issue of the "Higher Education Exchange" tell of bright spots in higher education where experiments in working with and for the public are taking place. In different ways, these experiments reveal the public that is visible when seen through the lens of a citizen-centered democracy. Following a foreword by Deborah Witte, contents of this issue include: (1) Faculty Happiness and Civic Agency (Claire Snyder-Hall); (2) Blind Spots in Academe (David W. Brown); (3) Faculty, Citizens, and Expertise in Democracy (Theodore R. Alter, Jeffrey C. Bridger, and Paloma Z. Frumento); (4) A Vision for the Liberal Arts: An Interview with Adam Weinberg (Adam Weinberg); (5) University Civic Engagement: A Global Perspective (Lorlene Hoyt); (6) Beyond Service and Service Learning: Educating for Democracy in College (Richard M. Battistoni); (7) Beyond Enclosure: Pedagogy for a Democratic Commonwealth (Romand Coles and Blase Scarnati); (8) "We Are the Ones We Have Been Waiting For: The Promise of Civic Renewal in America" by Peter Levine (Marietjie Oelofsen); and (9) Who Are the Citizens We Serve? A View from the Wetlands of Democracy (David Mathews). Individual articles contain references. [For "Higher Education Exchange, 2013," see ED560890.]
