A 'Playbook For Trustees' Highlights Innovative Practices for Campus Change Initiatives - EdSurge

A GUIDE FOR TRUSTEES: Eighty-nine percent of Americans think higher education must change in order to meet the needs of today’s students, according to a study by the Lumina Foundation. To encourage more colleges to take on major (and often daunting) change initiatives, the American Council of Trustees and Alumni (ACTA) today released its second guide geared towards the university leaders who head up these efforts. The report offers examples from different universities, including Arizona State University, University of Colorado and Purdue University, colleges referred to as “Blueprints of Reform.” With each campus, the guide details efforts around affordability and administrative changes all targeting “improved student outcomes and efficiency without compromising academic quality and student options,” a press announcement reads. https://www.edsurge.com/news/2017-05-04-a-playbook-for-trustees-highlights-innovative-practices-for-campus-change-initiatives
