Broton, Katharine; Goldrick-Rab, Sara – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
Some students from low-income families are unable to pay their college costs without experiencing material hardship.

Strategic college leaders are investigating the needs of their students and drawing on the strengths of their institutions…

Meotti, Michael P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
The "proud-parent" attitude of states towards higher education between 1945 and 1970--due to the baby boom, the technological contributions that research universities had made to the war effort, and the GI Bill--began to cool in the late 1960s, when inflation and increasing demands from other state services such as Medicaid, prisons,…

Methvin, Patrick; Markham, Paul N. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
A startling number of students arrive at the doors of colleges and universities lacking the essential skills and knowledge required to succeed there.

Kuh, George D.; Kinzie, Jillian; Schuh, John H.; Whitt, Elizabeth J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2011
A few years ago, in "Student Success in College (SSiC)," the authors profiled twenty colleges and universities that were unusually effective in fostering student engagement and success, defined as better-than-predicted scores on the National Survey of Student Engagement (NSSE) and better-than-predicted graduation rates. These schools are…

Diez, Mary E.; Athanasiou, Nancy; Pointer Mace, Desiree – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2010
Many would say that while there are two ways to enter the teaching profession--traditional and alternative--there seems to be a common way to leave it: quickly. Across the board, more than half of beginning teachers leave teaching before their fifth year, and that percentage is even higher in urban public schools and for those prepared by some…

Lardner, Emily; Malnarich, Gillies – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2009
The "little blue book"--an affectionate title used by admirers of Student Assessment-as-Learning at Alverno College--is written (rather stunningly) "by the Alverno College Faculty." The story behind this paradigm-shifting work on assessment underscores the vital role faculty inquiry plays in institutional and system-wide…
