In what is becoming an annual exercise, Lisa and I reviewed the past year of trends collected in The Scan to forecast what might be coming in 2018. Our resulting essay appears in Inside Higher Ed today. While the developments affecting higher education are sobering, we also offer practical advice for action steps college and university leaders can take to get ahead of the curve. We welcome your thoughts and additions to our list.
We are steadily adding subscribers for The Scan, our daily and weekly newsletter of trends affecting higher education. As new recipients join us, I thought it might be useful to explain why we started this newsletter and how we imagine it helping you.
The two of us are voracious readers, but we also know what it’s like to be busy leaders who are inundated with information. Our first goal is to help university leaders, administrators and faculty cut through the clutter and identify key developments that may be relevant to your decision-making.
