Isn’t It Pragmatic?

Isn’t It Pragmatic?

April 05, 2017

Michael S. Roth, president of Wesleyan University (CT), writes: Earlier this semester I traveled to India to talk about the importance of a broad, contextual education -- a pragmatic liberal education. Over the last few years, Indian students fortunate enough to have choices about where to pursue their studies have been, like their counterparts in China, increasingly interested in American liberal arts colleges and universities.

In Trump’s Budget: The Unwisest Cut

In Trump’s Budget: The Unwisest Cut

March 27, 2017

Andrew Hamilton, president of New York University, writes: The budget outline released by the White House this month demonstrates what that is – an astonishing set of cuts in America’s science enterprise, perhaps most notably in the National Institutes of Health, from which I have received a great deal of my support over the years as an organic chemist.

Another Voice: TAP Awards Need to Go Up

Another Voice: TAP Awards Need to Go Up

March 24, 2017

John J. Hurley, president of Canisius College (NY), writes: Our proposal to improve TAP by increasing the maximum award and income-eligibility limits will make free tuition at SUNY and CUNY available to many more students with financial need, while preserving students’ rights to choose the school – public or private – that best fits their needs.

When Debate Dies, Who Loses?

When Debate Dies, Who Loses?

March 23, 2017

Walter M. Kimbrough, president of Dillard University (LA), writes: As part of my inaugural activities at Philander Smith College, in 2005, I started a lecture series called "Bless the Mic." In my remarks before introducing the first speaker, I said, "A lecture series is a staple in American higher education, but frankly, the average lecture series is boring, stuffy, dry, stale, and tired. I don’t want anyone to get me wrong. A fascinating conversation about ‘The Extravagant Universe: Exploding Stars, Dark Energy, and the Accelerating Cosmos’ is welcomed … but just not here."
