New Directions for Higher Education: Q&A with ACE's Molly Corbett Broad on Attainment
DiSalvio, Philip
New England Journal of Higher Education, Jul 2013
In April 2013, the "New England Journal of Higher Education" ("NEJHE") launched its "New Directions for Higher Education" series to examine emerging issues, trends, and ideas that have an impact on higher education policies, programs and practices. In this installment of the series, DiSalvio speaks with American Council on Education (ACE) President Molly Corbett Broad about the efforts ACE is making to raise educational attainment in the U.S. and around the world. The article highlights that with a focus on improving access and preparing every student to succeed, ACE convenes representatives from all sectors to collectively tackle the toughest higher education challenges and to address and resolve those issues that most affect access and student success. Among those issues are disparities in access, college completion, student preparation, financial aid, student debt loads, and higher education costs, as well as persistent gaps in access to and completion of higher education by minority groups. Ongoing challenges remain in making higher education more accessible and attainable. Providing useful insights on the transformational potential massive open online courses (MOOCs) hold for higher education, and how higher education will evolve in the U.S. over the next 20 years, Broad points to the efforts that ACE is making in developing the next generation of higher education leadership. This article includes additional details of the interview. [Additional support for the article preparation was provided by "NEJHE's" Journal Staff.]
