Mellow, Gail O. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
In thinking about the changes in higher education over the past five decades as "Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning" turns 50, the image that comes to mind is pixilation, the process by which complex digital images, when seen up close, are expressed as small individual squares of color.

Bragg, Debra; McCambly, Heather; Durham, Brian – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
The newest student activist movement appears to be amplifying what some higher education practitioners have talked about for a long time: students of color have been granted access to an educational opportunity that was not as advertised, and the result is not good enough.

Navarro, Diego – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2012
