Banda, Roselyn – Journal of International Students, 2018
This article outlines the impact of cultural shock and my way of overcoming it as I migrated to the U.S. as an international student. Often-times, even in academia, where we learn to question and look at things from multiple angles, we essentialize subject positions and as a result silence, alienate, and erase many people. Through the use of…

Pinheiro, Rómulo; Charles, David; Jones, Glen – Tertiary Education and Management, 2017
Multi-campus university systems are not a new phenomenon. In their foundational analysis of multi-campus universities in the United States published in 1971, Lee and Bowen noted that almost 40% of American students were enroled in institutions that were part of multi-campus systems. The role of these complex multi-campus systems has continued to…

Holmwood, John – British Journal of Sociology of Education, 2017
This article takes a historical approach to the rise and fall of the public university, relating its fate to specific developments in public policy.

Perez, Angel B. – New England Journal of Higher Education, 2016
Colleges and universities have a significant role to play in shaping the future of race and class relations in America. As exhibited in this year's presidential election, race and class continue to divide. Black Lives Matter movements, campus protests, and police shootings are just a few examples of the proliferation of intolerance, and higher…

Cuthill, Michael; O'Shea, Éidín; Wilson, Bruce; Viljoen, Pierre – Australian Universities' Review, 2014
Australian policy relating to knowledge exchange has never been well articulated, notwithstanding that the nexus between knowledge, engagement and higher education in Australia has been on the national agenda for several decades (Grattan Institute, 2013). In universities, this policy deficit is reflected in a lack of project management and…

Gordon, Daniel – Liberal Education, 2012
With the US unemployment rate at 9 percent, it's rational for college students to lose confidence in the liberal arts and to opt for a vocational major. Or is it? There is a compelling economic case for the liberal arts. Against those who call for more professional training, liberal educators should concede nothing. However, they do have a…

Sturgis, Ingrid – Diverse: Issues in Higher Education, 2012
In President Barack Obama's most recent State of the Union address, technology figured significantly as part of his plan to increase the number of college graduates and reduce the cost of education.

Dobson, Ian R. – Australian Universities' Review, 2012
The Australian PhD is a relatively recent phenomenon, the first three being awarded in 1948. Before that, most Australian scholars typically went to Britain (predominantly) or the USA to undertake their doctoral studies. The aim of this research note is to provide a brief statistical history of the Australian PhD, noting changes over time between…

Pillay, Yegan; Bhat, Christine Suniti – Journal of College Student Psychotherapy, 2012
The number of students with Asperger's Syndrome enrolled at tertiary institutions in the United States continues to increase. This can be attributed to: (a) the passage of legislations such as the Individuals with Disabilities Act (IDEA) and the Americans with Disabilities Act of 1990 (ADA); (b) revisions to the "Diagnostic and Statistical…

Nunez, Anne-Marie; Murakami-Ramalho, Elizabeth – Academe, 2012
Although Latino enrollment in higher education has increased as the US Latino population has grown (Latinos now outnumber African Americans), more often than not Latinos begin their college education in community colleges or less selective four-year institutions--institutional types with lower persistence and completion rates in general. Moreover,…

Levin, John S. – Academe, 2012
In this article, the author discusses the disparate reality of full-time academic labor in public institutions of higher education in the United States.

Dwyer, Rachel E.; McCloud, Laura; Hodson, Randy – Social Forces, 2012
The goal of "college-for-all" in the United States has been pursued in an environment of rising tuition, stagnant grant aid and already strapped family budgets with the gap filled by college loans. College students are thus facing increasing levels of debt as they seek to develop their human capital and improve their career options. Debt…

Fallows, James – Trusteeship, 2012
From afar, the boom in China's higher education system seems to be one more indication of its ceaseless rise overall. Potentially it is the most significant sign, since a China that could rival the existing American and Western-democratic dominance of the world's research and educational establishment might enjoy many other advantages as well.…

Carr, James R. – International Journal of Mathematical Education in Science and Technology, 2012
A well-known approach to linear least squares regression is that which involves minimizing the sum of squared orthogonal projections of data points onto the best fit line. This form of regression is known as orthogonal regression, and the linear model that it yields is known as the major axis. A similar method, reduced major axis regression, is…
