Changing Public Perceptions of Higher Ed
Harney, John O.
New England Journal of Higher Education, Mar 2018
The benefits of going to college and the importance of higher education institutions were once held to be a creed as American as apple pie. But recurring state budget challenges have constrained investment. Consistently rising tuitions--fueled by increasing college costs--have alarmed many. Politics and free-speech controversies have raised questions about college and universities' openness and balance of perspectives. In short, times have changed. A New England Board of Higher Education (NEBHE) panel discussion on "The Changing Public Perceptions of the Value of Higher Education: Is It a Public Good?," examined the waning public confidence in higher education.
