Coker, Jeffrey Scott; Porter, Desiree Jasmine – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015

At the time, there was a pragmatic need to collect data that would inform revisions to the core curriculum, including an experiential-learning requirement (ELR) that had been in place since 1994. The question was whether it made sense to raise the…

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.

Jones, Stan – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Due to extensive research, we now know that in spite of extraordinary success in expanding access to American higher education over the last 60 years, far too little has been done to ensure that students complete college, even when they take 50 percent more time to complete the degree than full-time attendance should require. Obstacles to success…

Smith, Caroline Altman; Baldwin, Christopher; Schmidt, Gretchen – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Ten years ago, community college presidents' most valued datum was the number of students enrolled, which drove the colleges' funding. Providing access to higher education for the millions of students without the time, money, or academic preparation to attend a traditional four-year college was (as it always had been) their top priority. Today, a…

Wolfson, Adele J.; Cuba, Lee; Day, Alexandra – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Liberal arts colleges produce a disproportionate number of PhDs in the sciences (National Science Foundation 2008), and knowledgeable observers praise the "cross-training" of these colleges' science majors (Cech 1999; Connell 2004; Ekman 2007; Pascarella et al. 2004; Steitz 2001; Tilghman 2010). While many of the positive outcomes of…

Witham, Keith; Chase, Megan; Bensimon, Estela Mara; Hanson, Debbie; Longanecker, David – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Since President Obama declared college completion a national priority, many states have set ambitious goals to increase college-going and degree completion. But as was suggested in an earlier "Change" article, "We Have Goals, Now What?" (November/December 2012), this is only the first stage of reform. For states to reach those…

Coppola, Brian P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
