Why Free Speech and Diversity and Inclusion Go Hand in Hand on Campus

Why Free Speech and Diversity and Inclusion Go Hand in Hand on Campus

May 02, 2022

Lori White, president of DePauw University (IN), writes: Confidence in higher ed is slipping, in part because some adults assume colleges do not provide open opportunities for learning and debate. Regardless of whether this perspective is wholly accurate, campuses should rest on freedom of expression and exploration of ideas.

How a College Decides Who Its Peers Are

How a College Decides Who Its Peers Are

April 19, 2022

Susan Poser, president of Hofstra University (NY), writes:  In early 2022, after six months as the new president of Hofstra University, I and my senior leadership team embarked on an exercise to choose peer institutions. This was done in the context of a multifaceted, yearlong initiative to gather input from students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees to kick off strategic planning. How do we define our university, we asked stakeholders, and what are our ambitions? Coincidentally, as we were completing this peer exercise last month, The Chronicle published a visualization showing nearly 1,500 colleges’ self-identified peer institutions.  The visualization shows not only which institutions a college identified as its peers, but also which institutions chose that college as a peer. The visualization is fascinating and reveals a lot about how institutions think about their peers and themselves.

Michael Schneider, president of McPherson College (KS), writes: As we move toward a post-pandemic economy, it’s time to send a strong reminder to Congress that economic rebound can be supported by increasing the maximum Pell Grant. #Double Pell – a national bipartisan movement to raise the per-person grant from its cap of $6,500 to $13,000 annually – would put a reasonably priced college education within reach of every American student and potentially eliminate their student debt.
