Surveys

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 will analyze the survey's findings and answered readers' questions about them in a free webinar. Register to attend the webinar here.

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