College Plays a Powerful Role in Achieving the American Dream

April 09, 2018

Mark McCoy, president of DePauw University (IN), writes:  I am an unlikely president of an liberal arts college. But as the son of a coal miner, a first-generation college student, and someone who works with college kids every day, I know firsthand the transformative power of higher education in America. I have witnessed how it breaks the cycle of poverty and dependence to develop leaders in all walks of life.

Higher Education Does Make America Greater

Higher Education Does Make America Greater
