“The Changing Landscape of Higher Education: Opportunities Disguised As Challenges”
American higher education is undergoing dramatic and rapid change. For many, that change is seen as a threat. But for the optimists among us, the change represents enormous opportunity. For our students, change means more meaningful activities, greater levels of engagement, and higher levels of learning outcomes. For low-income students, first-generation students and students of color, the changes represent hope and possibility. For faculty, change represents new ways of working with colleagues that may be more stimulating and exciting. Change also represents new approaches to teaching that allow faculty deeper levels of engagement with students. For institutions, change represents opportunities to cast off old models and build a more sustainable institutional future. Change offers new possibilities for organization and structure. Change can create 21st century models of higher education, more responsive and adaptable than the legacy structures from the last century.
