Check out the hottest topics from Inside Higher Ed, as well as upcoming events and a terrific special offer on job advertising.


An apparent dichotomy sparked lots of e-mail forwards in May. Dan Berrett’s article about a new survey finding that fine arts grads do better in the job market than one might think was our most e-mailed story, but Kevin Kiley’s coverage of a new study out of Georgetown U finding big income disparities depending on college major -- with engineering and business topping the salary charts -- was a close second. Dan’s story on the erosion of quality of life many faculty members are feeling was our most-read story last month. Readers posted the most to Scott Jaschik’s very brief article about a study finding that Democratic professors appear to be "more egalitarian" than their Republican counterparts when it comes to grading. And they’re off!
