HEA 6390 - Contemporary Issues in Higher Education

The administration of higher education is fraught with complex debates on topics of concern to internal and external constituencies, and those who work in higher education are required to communicate professional and scholarly positions, institutional commitments, and strategic decisions to a variety of audiences. The class explores the foundations of higher education through critical analysis of contemporary issues in the field. Students will assess potential implications of policy recommendation and administrative decisions in areas such as affordability, access, academic freedom, privacy concerns, and commercialization.
