Higher Education Research, Policy, and the Challenges of Reform

Studies in Higher Education Volume 39, Number 8, ISSN 0307-5079


Postsecondary institutions always have been in a state of change. The author discusses four key areas of higher education--systems of tertiary education, privatization, academic work, and technology--that demand careful analysis that have always been of concern but now are entering a new phase of change. The author offers an interpretation of the current state of American higher education in general, and in California in particular.
