Audio: College Planners Discuss How They Push for Change - Facilities - The Chronicle of Higher Education | UWG Campus Planning | Scoop.it

Podcasts of three SCUP–47 speakers from Scott Carlson of The Chronicle of Higher Education.

 

"This year's annual conference of the Society for College and University Planning, convening in Chicago this week, will focus on something higher education is not known for: change. The conference organizers note that higher education is under a lot of scrutiny these days, with people questioning its cost and value. For institutional planners, who are trying to navigate the future for colleges and universities, a push for change can be a daunting challenge and exciting prospect.

 

The conference is bringing a number of speakers who address changes large and small in higher education. The Chronicle caught up with three of those speakers in the podcasts highlighted here."

12 Inconvenient Truths

12 Inconvenient Truths | UWG Campus Planning | Scoop.it

Washington, DC – A new report issued by the Center for College Affordability and Productivity (CCAP) details “12 inconvenient truths about American higher education.” Professor Richard Vedder, Director of the Center and author of the report, argues that despite the widespread impression American colleges and universities are the best in the world, “below the surface, there are a large number of flaws in the system.” As the public discourse is increasingly focusing on higher education reform, an overview of the flaws in the current system is both timely and necessary.
