Thomas, Nancy; Brower, Margaret – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Commitment to democracy and democratic norms is declining to the point where many Americans question the current political system as a form of democratic governance. Americans are deeply divided along lines of social identity, political preferences, and lived experiences (Pew Research Center, 2017a). The rhetoric and divisiveness of the 2016…

Bass, Randy; Eynon, Bret – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
The last five years have been active and noisy ones for the impact of technology and online education on the future of colleges and universities. Much has been said to disparage the traditional institutional model and champion strategies of disrupting or "unbundling" higher education, powered by the explosion of Web-based learning…

Frantz, Alan C.; Lawson, Jonathan N. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Although institutions of higher education rarely crumble and fall in the wake of votes of no confidence in their leadership--in presidents, senior administrators, or even governing boards--those expressions of discontent do have meaning. They suggest something awry at the institution, and even the potential to precipitate change. They also present…

Streitwieser, Bernhard; Beecher, Bradley – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Higher education institutions today are locked in fierce global competition. This is driven by many factors, but perhaps mostly by the highly public international rankings that exert tremendous pressures on institutional leaders. The importance that rankings have taken on recently (Yudkevich, Altbach, & Rumbley, 2016) critically affects the…

Romano, Richard M.; Palmer, James C. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
Swings in enrollment and funding caused by the most recent recession have reminded community college leaders that the ups and downs of the economy can have a significant impact on their institutions. While the impact on enrollment and funding is well documented, lesser known impacts can be also be found on things such as student persistence,…

Martin, Jeremy P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Rankings are a powerful force in higher education, swaying the enrollment decisions of prospective students and affecting the opinions of parents, board members, and policymakers. In the words of one provost, "The rankings matter to our university because they matter to people who matter to us." Rankings are also a business--one that is…

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…

Green, Madeleine F.; Bezbatchenko, Annie W. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
This article begins by observing that foundations come in all shapes and sizes. The mission and grant-making philosophy of any foundation are determined by an unscientific mixture of its history, changing external realities, and leaders. The article then continues by describing The Teagle Foundation, a small, philanthropic organization with about…

Krzykowski, Linda; Kinser, Kevin – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
With the cost of higher education steadily increasing, many people are wondering what, if anything, students are learning on college campuses.

Massy, William F.; Sullivan, Teresa A.; Mackie, Christopher – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2013
Higher education is a critical element of the American economy, because of both its benefits and its costs to individuals and taxpayers. Yet we know very little about the relationships between the things colleges and universities do and the resources they need to do them. Currently, shrinking public support and increasing tuition make it urgent…

The project, Context…

Capps, Rosemary – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
A growing majority of today's college-goers are adult students, and the economic and cultural trends driving this growth are here for the long term. In some respects this is good news: Adult undergraduate students tend to earn higher GPAs and have better aptitude and psychosocial scores than do traditional-aged students. Unfortunately, adult…

Hall, Matthew Henry – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
In this cartoon essay, the author shares his experience from a travel to Paris to see the French higher education system. From his travel, he learned that in France, "degree" inflation may be an issue, but not grade inflation. On the flight home, the author reflects how French and American academics answer one question about the state of…
