Most students remain worried about money and the cost of required academic materials, and the impact is worse for minority students, the National Survey of Student Engagement finds.


March 13, 2015 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2015 Survey of College and University Presidents explored the views of presidents on the financial sustainability of their institutions, the Obama administration's rating system, sexual assault, race and their role in the tenure process, among other topics.

The survey was conducted in conjunction with researchers from Gallup Education. Inside Higher Ed regularly surveys key higher ed professionals on a range of topics.

On April 14, Inside Higher Ed Editors Doug Lederman and Scott Jaschik analyzed the survey's findings and answered readers' questions about them in a free webinar. View the webinar here.

The Inside Higher Ed survey of presidents was made possible in part by advertising from Academic Partnerships, Jenzabar and Pearson.


"Data, Analytics and Student Learning" is Inside Higher Ed's latest print-on-demand compilation of articles.

The booklet features articles about trends, debates and strategies of a range of institutions.

This compilation is free and you may download a copy here.

And you may sign up here for a free webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 29 at 2 p.m. Eastern about the themes of the booklet.
