Foote, Kathleen; Henderson, Charles; Knaub, Alexis; Dancy, Melissa; Beichner, Robert – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019
The authors wrote this article to share a message of hope to change agents working in higher education. Even if change cannot happen right away, assembling a foundation of interested collaborators, waiting for the right time to act, and thinking of past failures as opportunities to build the groundwork can result in productive changes. Acting once…

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.

Bowman, Linda S. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Having come into community colleges as an adjunct instructor 25 years ago, Linda Bowman notes that much has changed since then.

Waiwaiole, Evelyn; Elston, Dhanfu – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Originally, the mission of the community college was one of access--to provide an opportunity for students to attend postsecondary education without leaving their communities. Over time, though, as more students enrolled in these institutions, many never left with an associate's degree, credential, or transfer to a four-year college or university.…

Maimon, Elaine P. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
Reform in American higher education depends on recognizing freshman courses as the foundation of higher-order thinking and learning.

The Maimon Hierarchical Fallacy is a phrase coined by Elaine Maimon to refer…

Gehrke, Sean; Kezar, Adrianna – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
STEM undergraduate education reforms are more likely to be effective if undertaken not by individual faculty members but by faculty networks or "communities of transformation."

Castleman, Ben; Page, Lindsay – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA)--which students must complete to qualify for most federal, state, and institutional financial aid--is a gateway to college through which many students must pass, particularly those from low- to moderate-income households (King, 2004; Kofoed, 2013). Yet given the complexity of the…

Weaver, Karen – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
College athletics fans would be hard pressed to find a year like 2014 in college-sports history. In this year alone, the US judicial and arbitration systems have had to address four major legal actions coming from current and former student athletes. All speak to a core issue: that colleges have not done enough to protect or provide for their…

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…

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. If given the proper tools and supports, the great majority of these students would be able to achieve their goals in and outside of the classroom. But most of them are shuttled off to developmental…

Wolfe, Kathy J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
Serious curricular reform is both exhilarating in its possibilities and exhausting in its particulars. When its scope is significant and it is undertaken in response to a variety of difficult challenges, curriculum revision becomes more about cultural change than a mere matter of logistics. While studying adaptive leadership with colleagues at the…

In this article, Sheila Schulte and Rahul Choudaha state that recruiting international students is costly but rewarding financially and academically, so the loss for an institution if these students are not retained is considerable.
