American Higher Education in Crisis?

Higher education has never been more important and never faced more challenges. Rising costs, student debt, and public doubts about the value of college all are on the rise, while advocates and business interests increasingly see the sector as badly in need of reform.

This book, American Higher Education in Crisis? What Everyone Needs to Know, which I was asked to write by Oxford University Press, uses a breezy Q&A format to describe the forces and events that have brought American colleges to this point and highlights some of the ways going to college might change in the years to come.

The book offers a sophisticated yet accessible overview of the trends that matter today. Perfect for parents, students of higher education, people who work or help run postsecondary institutions, and those who now do or seek to do business with colleges today
