A “denial bubble” in higher ed? A report worth reading. #highered



A few weeks ago Academic Impressions released a very thoughtful report about the challenges that face higher education today. The report, “The other higher ed bubble,” provides thoughtful and balanced analysis.

Perhaps the most compelling part of the report is the call for institutions to examine the things that are happening on campus that continue to drive up the cost. The report asks intuitions to take a hard look, which will not be easy.

The report comes at a time when we all are aware that the public is increasingly skeptical of what we do and the value of the college degree. It should provoke thought on the part of college leaders who are faced with declining ability and willingness to pay what has been asked 

I like the report because it calls for bold action and leadership. And, that’s exactly what higher education need now.

You can access a video introduction to the report here.

You can download and read the full report here.

I think this is worth sharing and discussing. I will have more to say about this in the coming week, but urge you to have a look for yourself.

What do you thinking about “The other higher ed bubble?”
