Sanchez, Elizabeth R. H.; Fulcher, Keston H.; Smith, Kristen L.; Ames, Allison; Hawk, William J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
National events highlight a critical need for refined decision-making skills; tragic ethical shortcomings are all too common in our society (James Madison University, 2013; Smith, Fulcher, & Sanchez, 2015).

Palmer, Michael S.; Wheeler, Lindsay B.; Aneece, Itiya – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
Essentially, the syllabus is a physical artifact outlining key structural elements of a course. It often serves contractual, record keeping, and/or communication functions.

Eddy, Pamela L.; Ward, Kelly – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Casual observers of academic environments might conclude that women's problems in higher education have been resolved. Colleges enroll more women than men on an overall basis. There is gender parity in entry-level faculty hires, and the number of women in senior administrative positions continues to rise. A closer look however at the work, lives,…

Lambert, Matthew T. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
After two centuries of public higher education in the United States, the covenant between public colleges and universities and the public that created and funded them is under strain. In a time of scarce resources and changing policy in many corners of the country and around the globe, privatization has emerged as a possible replacement for the…

Eddy, Pamela L.; Barber, James P.; Holly, Neal; Brush, Kim; Bohon, Leslie; Green, Madeleine F. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2013
In the March-April 2013 issue of "Change," Patti McGill Peterson and Robin Matross Helms described the disheartening status of internationalization on American college campuses.

Plank, Jeffrey; Feldon, David; Sherman, William; Elliot, Jennifer – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2011
Research-intensive universities enjoy--or suffer--a paradoxical reputation: They are thought to be dedicated to both cutting-edge research and to the preservation of the canon. They are seen as broad and diverse communities of scholars with a vibrant collective intellectual life, yet also as silos of disciplinary entrenchment. Most significantly,…

Erwin, T. Dary; DeFilippo, Joseph G. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2010
A virtual tsunami of accountability policy proposals--from national taskforces, higher education organizations, the federal government, and others--has washed over higher education in recent years. Almost forgotten in this profusion of proposals is the role of the states, which have a large investment in student learning, and--in some cases--a…
