The Value of Independent Sector Education

The Value of Independent Sector Education

October 24, 2017

Rev. James J. Maher, president of Niagara University (NY), writes: With smaller class sizes (20 on average), meaningful engagement with faculty and mentors, real-world opportunities, smaller student bodies (60 percent of independent, not-for-profit colleges and universities in NYS enroll fewer than 2,000 students) and comparatively positive outcomes (high graduation rates and excellent employment statistics), the relative cost of going to a private college or university is favorable to families.

The Life-Shaping Power of Higher Education

The Life-Shaping Power of Higher Education

October 06, 2017

Marvin Krislov, president of Pace University (NY), writes: The past decade is proof that higher education is more relevant and essential to our modern world than ever before -- and the value of a college degree has never been greater than it is today. Providing access to such an education for any student who wishes to pursue it strikes me as a goal that any great nation should and must embrace.

Lessons From a Merger: A Brighter Future by Expanding Our Vision

October 03, 2017

Susan Henking, president emerita of Shimer College (IL), writes: The reality is that no institution and no president, no board and no faculty, are alone facing change.

Drew U. President: We Heard You, We're Lowering Tuition by 20 Percent

Drew U. President: We Heard You, We're Lowering Tuition by 20 Percent

September 22, 2017

MaryAnn Baenninger, president of Drew University (NJ), writes:  As the president of Drew University, I have the frequent opportunity to listen closely to high schoolers, parents and teachers across the state of New Jersey.   
My admissions officers, senior staff, campus representatives and I hear a not surprising concern--that college tuition is too high. We also hear that despite concerns about costs, parents want their children to have access to the options and opportunities of an education like the one offered Drew, the only private, residential, national liberal arts college in New Jersey.
