Gutman Library Book Talk - Students First: Equity, Access, and Opportunity in Higher Education
Although a college education remains one of the great drivers of socioeconomic mobility, today's higher education industry has built financial, logistical, and practical barriers that keep out the very students who are most in need of opportunity. Students First makes a persuasive case that realigning US educational priorities will enable larger populations of graduates to enjoy return on investment in the form of good pay, meaningful work, and a stable future. As the book emphasizes, such change is imperative, for in better serving its students, higher education will better serve society.
With Paul LeBlanc, president of Southern New Hampshire University and author of this book.
Dr. Bridget Terry Long, Ph.D.'00, Dean of the Faculty of Education and Saris Professor of Education and Economics at HGSE and wrote the forward to this book.
