In 2026, when the front edge of this birth dearth reaches college campuses, the number of college-aged students will drop almost 15 percent in just 5 years. In demographics and the Demand for Higher Education, Nathan D. While many schools face painful contractions, for example, demand for elite schools is expected to grow by more than 15 percent in future years.

Essential for administrators and trustees who are responsible for recruitment, facilities construction, and strategic planning, tenure practices, admissions, student support, this book is a practical guide for navigating coming enrollment challenges. Decades-long patterns in fertility, migration, and immigration persistently nudge the country toward the Hispanic Southwest.

Furthermore, and in response to the Great Recession, child-bearing has plummeted. Analyzing demand forecasts by institution type and rank while disaggregating by demographic groups, elite institutions, Grawe provides separate forecasts for two-year colleges, and everything in between. Grawe has developed the higher education demand index HEDI, which relies on data from the 2002 Education Longitudinal Study ELS to estimate the probability of college-going using basic demographic variables.

. As a result, the northeast and midwest―traditional higher education strongholds―expect to lose 5 percent of their college-aged populations between now and the mid-2020s. The future demand for college attendance, he argues, depends critically on institution type. Higher education faces a looming demographic storm.

Our Higher Calling: Rebuilding the Partnership between America and Its Colleges and Universities

In the midst of this turmoil, students are frequently referred to as customers and faculty as employees, educational outcomes are increasingly measured in terms of hiring and salary metrics for graduates, and programs are assessed as profit and loss centers. Jossey-Bass Inc Pub. Johns hopkins Univ Pr. In our higher calling, inside and outside the academy, to address these problems head on, Holden Thorp and Buck Goldstein draw on interviews with higher education thought leaders and their own experience, articulating the challenges facing higher education and describing in pragmatic terms what can and cannot change--and what should and should not change.

They argue that those with a stake in higher education must first understand a fundamental compact that has long been at the heart of the American system: a partnership wherein colleges and universities support the development of an educated and skilled citizenry and create new knowledge in exchange for stable public investment and a strong degree of autonomy to pursue research without undue external pressure.

Despite efforts to integrate business-oriented thinking and implement new forms of accountability in colleges and universities, Americans from all backgrounds are losing confidence in the nation's institutions of higher learning, and these institutions must increasingly confront what has proven to be an unsustainable business model.

There is a growing sense of crisis and confusion about the purpose and sustainability of higher education in the United States. By outlining ways to restore this partnership, Thorp and Goldstein endeavor to start a conversation that paves the way for a solution to one of the country's most pressing problems.


The Privileged Poor: How Elite Colleges Are Failing Disadvantaged Students

These students approach campus life very differently from students who attended local, and typically troubled, public high schools and are often left to flounder on their own. Getting in is only half the battle. This bracing and necessary book documents how university policies and cultures can exacerbate preexisting inequalities and reveals why these policies hit some students harder than others.

Despite their lofty aspirations, admitting scores of lower-income black, top colleges hedge their bets by recruiting their new diversity largely from the same old sources, Latino, and white undergraduates from elite private high schools like Exeter and Andover. Johns hopkins Univ Pr. Drawing on interviews with dozens of undergraduates at one of America’s most famous colleges and on his own experiences as one of the privileged poor, Jack describes the lives poor students bring with them and shows how powerfully background affects their chances of success.

College presidents and deans of admission have opened their doors―and their coffers―to support a more diverse student body. The privileged poor reveals how―and why―disadvantaged students struggle at elite colleges, and explains what schools can do differently if these students are to thrive.

The ivy league looks different than it used to. But is it enough just to admit these students? In The Privileged Poor, Anthony Jack reveals that the struggles of less privileged students continue long after they’ve arrived on campus.
