It's official! From a study of black men who succeed in college to what President Obama meant by "on notice," to flame-fanning debates in the Arizona legislature to free course materials at Rice, more than 1,000,000 unique visitors found something compelling to read on Inside Higher Ed last month.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT

Huge readership for Doug Lederman's story last month on a new study analyzing a cohort of 219 black men (at a range of institutional types) who meet rigorous criteria that define them as "achievers," to understand both how and why they succeeded in college, and what campus leaders and others might do to help others follow in their footsteps. The story was picked up by several sites, resulting in more than 1,900 shares and scores of comments on the Inside Higher Ed site.

Also garnering lots of attention was Mitch Smith's coverage of debates in the Arizona legislature over a bill that would punish college instructors whose speech or actions would violate broadcast obscenity standards and another designed to protect conservative faculty members from discrimination in getting hired or tenured. Mitch's story on Rice University's plan to offer free course materials for five common introductory classes also drew tons of readers.

And Libby A. Nelson's article examining President Obama's plan for higher education, that could be a key plank of his re-election campaign this year, drew crowds of readers and passionate comments.
