Carruth, Blair K. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2019

Kezar, Adrianna – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
For several decades, there has been increasing criticism, first of the tenure track system and now at the rise in adjunct and non-tenure track faculty.

Hora, Matthew T.; Benbow, Ross J.; Smolarek, Bailey B. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2018
Graduate employability has increasingly become the key measure of a college and university's value.

Wienhausen, Gabriele; Elias, Kimberly – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2017
If we want a university and college education to focus on its purpose--learning--then we need to reframe the way we highlight outcomes.

Specifically, institutions should help students navigate and…

A new vision for institutional research is urgently needed if colleges and universities are to achieve their institutional missions, goals, and purposes.

Wagner, Ellen; Longanecker, David – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2016
The metrics used in the US to track students do not include adults and part-time students.

This development has allowed actionable,…

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,…

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.

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.

Green, Madeleine F.; Bezbatchenko, Annie W. – Change: The Magazine of Higher Learning, 2014
This article begins by observing that foundations come in all shapes and sizes. The mission and grant-making philosophy of any foundation are determined by an unscientific mixture of its history, changing external realities, and leaders. The article then continues by describing The Teagle Foundation, a small, philanthropic organization with about…
