Surveys

March 9, 2016 -- Inside Higher Ed's 2016 Survey of College and University Presidents addresses issues such as campus racial protests, nontraditional presidents, and the Obama administration's higher ed agenda.

The survey was conducted in conjunction with Gallup. A copy of the report can be downloaded here.

On Thursday, April 7, Inside Higher Ed editors Doug Lederman and Scott Jaschik shared and analyzed the findings and answered readers' questions in a webinar. View the webinar.
