The Future of Higher Education in America | ED.gov Blog

A lot of attention has been paid to making college more accessible and affordable. Now the U.S. Department of Education and the Obama Administration are focusing on keeping students in college until they complete a degree and making sure that they are prepared for life after college. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan recently outlined a new vision for higher education in America.

The Future of Higher Education in America “The degree students truly can’t afford is the one they don’t complete, or that employers don’t value.” More students are graduating college than ever before. But for too many students, the nation’s higher education system isn’t delivering what they need and…

Study documents how shifts in unemployment rates lead to shifts in college majors | InsideHigherEd

In a perfect world, many undergraduate students would major in a field in which they were passionate - art, sustainable living, education, social sciences. But in an uncertain economy, those same students might end up choosing a major with better job prospects as this study reports.

Conventional wisdom holds that in bad economic times, students are more likely to make academic decisions that favor fields perceived to be paths to jobs, and jobs that pay well. Despite plenty of evidence that liberal arts graduates also have successful careers, undergraduates (and their parents) t…

The way people receive a college education is changing.

How Much Physical Activity is Needed?

Inclusive Excellence: 2017 Undergraduate Science Education Grants

STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math) education is becoming a focus across all education levels as jobs in these fields are on the rise. However, many students come to college lacking the background knowledge to successfully master college-level STEM work. The Howard Hughes Medical Institute wants to change that by awarding grants to schools that take an inclusive approach to STEM education.

Students come to college along different pathways. Colleges and universities that intend to lead in science education must create capacity for enabling the success of all students, including students who transfer from community colleges or regional campuses and first-generation students.

The college rating tool scheduled to be released by the Education Department later this year is being reworked. While still focusing on how colleges address access, affordability and students’ outcomes, the tool will now act as a consumer information resource rather than a rating system. Here is the full explanation of the new approach.

The federal government will not compare colleges or pass judgment on their relative merits as part of the ratings system the U.S. Department of Education plans to release before the end of the summer, department officials said Wednesday.
