Poulin, Russell; Straut, Terri Taylor – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018

Turner, Sarah – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018

Huber, Mary Taylor – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
What happens to public colleges and universities when confidence in the value of public institutions wanes? Nothing good, to judge from two new books whose titles telegraph the tale: "The Great Mistake," by Christopher Newfield and "Austerity Blues," by Michael Fabricant and Stephen Brier. This article discusses how the authors…

Broton, Katharine; Goldrick-Rab, Sara – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
Some students from low-income families are unable to pay their college costs without experiencing material hardship. What they do to make ends meet (e.g., go hungry and homeless) inhibits learning and discourages persistence. Strategic college leaders are investigating the needs of their students and drawing on the strengths of their institutions…

Jones, Dennis P.; Johnstone, Sally M. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
With very few exceptions colleges and universities of all types--2-year and 4-year, public and private-- are feeling the fiscal pinch. They are caught in the vise of rising expectations and constrained revenues. Public institutions are operating in an environment in which state-level policy-makers press for increasing numbers of graduates,…

Hoffman, Jennifer Lee – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
The circulation of head football coaches is a well-established practice, and with it, salary costs are significantly outpacing other spending as institutions compete in the pursuit of prestige. This movement of college football coaches is known in the popular press as the "coaching carousel." The carousel is a fitting metaphor for a…

Weerts, David J. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
As state support for higher education has continued its downward slide, several commissions, declarations, and association reports have called on colleges and universities to be more productively engaged with state and regional needs.

Kadamus, James A. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2015
When trustees, presidents, and senior college administrators meet, one topic dominates the conversation: how to keep education quality high and costs down. To keep quality high, college leaders need to have strong faculties and state-of-the-art facilities for teaching and research. Quality counts but it also costs, and that is where the pressures…

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…

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.
