Ortega, Suzanne T.; Kent, Julia D. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
The higher education accountability efforts of the past decade have placed pressures on universities to more rigorously evaluate the quality and outcomes of their programs while the emergence of new methodologies, from big data approaches to business analytics platforms, have also expanded ways of measuring the quality and return on investment of…

Salinero, Kennan Kellaris – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Science is in an era of a hypercompetitive job market, with five PhDs for every faculty position and 60 percent of recent PhD graduates leaving science altogether. Current challenges call for a fundamental shift to new ways of thinking and working in science. The tech sector provides examples, not necessarily readily seen, that the scientific…

Trosset, Carol; Weisler, Steven – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Kuh (2008) describes the capstone as a "culminating experience" students undertake close to graduation often involving "a project of some sort that integrates and applies what they've learned" (p. 11). The senior thesis is one form of the capstone in which students write an analytic paper under faculty supervision, typically as…

Weaver, Karen; Tegtmeyer, Jordan – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Top football programs around the country are leading a trend of building exclusive player-only villages to enhance the togetherness of the team. Although coaches love this idea, little thought has been given to the larger student development and isolation issues this trend creates for students on a team. Further segregating them from the rest of…

Marklein, Mary Beth – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Higher education has proven to be a welcome and useful bridge between the United States and Vietnam, two countries that cut ties in 1975 in the aftermath of a painful war. In 1991, as the two nations began to reestablish diplomatic relations, the Fulbright exchange program with Vietnam quickly became the largest in Asia (Abuza, 1996). A…

Hutchings, Pat; Jankowski, Natasha A.; Baker, Gianina – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Designing the tasks that students are required to complete in their courses has always been an essential part of what faculty do as teachers, and many faculty members work hard to shape and reshape those tasks in ways that bring out the best in students. But such work has mostly been done behind the scenes. A growing number of programs, campuses,…

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…

Caskey, John P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
College-provided scholarships, or tuition discounts, are in the news. The National Association of College and University Business Officers recently estimated that the average discount for full-time, first-year undergraduates at private nonprofit colleges and universities hit 50 percent in the fall of 2017. In other words, these institutions…

Wright, Mary C.; Lohe, Debra Rudder; Little, Deandra – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Nearly 25 years after Barr and Tagg's (1995) article on the move away from the Instruction Paradigm, the authors argue that we are experiencing another shift, from a learning-centered to de-centered educational environment. Just as Barr and Tagg signalled a paradigm shift from teaching to learning, the authors suggest--nearly a quarter century…

Pazich, Loni Bordoloi; Kurzweil, Martin; Rossman, Daniel – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
The excitement about massive open online courses (MOOCs) in the early 2010s prompted many liberal arts colleges to consider whether technology would or could play a role in their own institutions. No college has the human resources to offer an endless variety of courses and programs, and the smaller the institution, the greater the constraints.…

To meet projected labor demands in science and engineering, the workforce of the future must be educated today in increasing numbers. Indeed, science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) underpin the government's ability to defend the nation and to assure the vitality of the economy.

Kezar, Adrianna; Holcombe, Elizabeth – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Student success in science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) is a major concern in higher education. While overall 6-year graduation rates are around 60% nationally (National Center for Education Statistics, 2016), only about 40% of students who enter college intending to major in a STEM field complete a STEM degree within 6 years. Studies…

Gardner, Susan K.; Ward, Kelly – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
The examples of remarks provided at the begining of this article describing their department chairs show two extremes: a department where the chair is highly valued by its faculty and contributes to a positive climate and, conversely, a chair who is seen as a bully and is perceived as a detriment to the work environment. While it is likely that…

Gagliardi, Jonathan; Parnell, Amelia; Carpenter-Hubin, Julie – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Over the last two years, more data was created than in the entire previous history of humankind (IBM, 2016; Marr, 2016). Roughly 1.7 megabytes of new information will be created every second for every person on earth by the turn of the decade (Evans, 2011; Gantz & Reinsel, 2012; Marr, 2016). Data are created continuously and at a rate that is…
