Protecting the Dreams of Immigrant Students

Protecting the Dreams of Immigrant Students

June 07, 2018

Marvin Krislov, president of Pace University (NY), writes: June is Immigration Heritage Month. It’s a time to celebrate American diversity, to celebrate the stories of those — like my mother and my grandparents — who came to this country and worked hard to succeed here, and to admire the bravery and perseverance of today’s immigrants, striving to achieve the American Dream.  It’s also time to redouble our efforts to support the roughly 700,000 young people, called Dreamers, who were brought to America as children and are protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program.

Independent Schools, Students, Worthy of Investment

June 07, 2018

Nancy Blattner, president of Caldwell University (NJ) and chair of the AICUNJ Board, writes: Gov. Phil Murphy recently challenged his Texas counterpart on a variety of reasons why New Jersey is a better place to live than Texas. Particularly, I appreciate Murphy’s highlighting of New Jersey’s “world-class colleges and universities” as evidence for his argument that New Jersey can more than hold its own in comparisons with other states, including Texas. But think how much better we could be with full funding from the state.

'Just-In-Time' Learning Can Revitalize Higher Ed

'Just-In-Time' Learning Can Revitalize Higher Ed

June 05, 2018

Carol Quillen, Ph.D., president, Davidson College (NC), writes: Students learn best when they see where the material will lead them – when learning is grounded in a clear context. That sounds obvious, but colleges that embrace this shift can change the pace of learning, significantly improving outcomes at comparatively low cost.
