Assessment and Accountability
Dec 01, 2015
Underemployment rates for college grads have sharply declined since the 2008 recession, and degree holders far outpace high school graduates, especially among African-American and Hispanic adults.


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.

The booklet's publication was made possible in part by the advertising support of Blackboard.

By now, it is widely accepted that curricular efforts to "engage" students -- to involve them deeply in the process of learning and in the actual material they study -- pays off. But as the number and proportion of underrepresented minority students and academically underprepared students of all races in college grows, educators and policy makers have lacked hard evidence that "engagement" practices work for those students, too.
