Higher Education On Trial

Higher Education On Trial | SCUP Links |

"Higher education in 2014 may be getting what it deserves, paying the price of having been a law unto itself for too long. It is time to move beyond a defense of privileges and self-interest to constructive engagement with the public’s questions before the opportunity passes.

For everyone’s sake, we hope it is not already too late."

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

Shirley Mullen is president of Houghton College (N.Y.). Perhaps she'll respond to our Call for Proposals (deadline October 1) “We Strengthen and Transform Higher Education” | July 11–15, 2015 | Chicago, IL #scup50

Tough Love—Bottom-Line Quality Standards for Colleges

Society for College and University Planning (SCUP)'s insight:

The proposal’s metrics are similar to those that the Obama administration has floated as possible standards for the college ratings system it is currently developing. But instead of universal ratings, the Education Trust paper calls for a focus on the worst-performing institutions in each category.

“We support the president’s college ratings proposal in concept,” Dannenberg said in an interview. But, he said, it’s a challenge figuring out how to do that accurately.
