The June 27 edition of our weekly audio newscast featured William Durden and Ann Kirschner -- college leaders with experience in for-profit higher education and at liberal arts institutions -- in a discussion about pressures on both sectors. They spoke with Inside Higher Ed's Doug Lederman and the moderator Casey Green about the apparent demise of Corinthian Colleges and the federal government's role in hastening it, and about a new study asserting that while private liberal arts colleges themselves may be declining, the liberal arts live on -- especially in honors colleges and other expanding programs at public institutions.
