“American Higher Education: Problems and Prospects”

The U.S. contemporary media are filled with queries and analyses of this sort:  “Is college a lousy investment?” and “Does a university degree cost too much?” while more academic treatments include books with titles like “Paying for the Party: How College Maintains Inequality” and “Higher Education in the Digital Age.” 

This presentation will examine past, current and anticipated future trends in American   higher education aiming to address the following question: To what degree should higher education be treated as a public good or as an individual investment?

Presented by Craig Little, Distinguished Service Professor, Sociology/Anthropology, SUNY Cortland
