About this item

The 23 essays in this volume consider contemporary issues in higher education in the US. Education researchers mainly from the US discuss issues related to diversity, including controversies over race-based affirmative action, college access, retention and access, undocumented students, and the purpose and preparation of chief diversity officers; issues regarding curriculum and instructional delivery, such as prestige and college rankings, accreditation, curriculum reform, liberal arts, competency-based education, and for-profit higher education; issues facing students in terms of social media, equity in athletics, student veterans, and guns on campus; legal and regulatory issues like sexual violence, “open” campus areas and First Amendment speech rights, and substance abuse policies; and the economy and finance of higher education, including university endowments, incorporating innovation and entrepreneurship in STEM programs, state merit aid programs, performance-based funding, and the future of higher education funding in federal-state partnerships.
