Margins & Missions... Not Moonshots: Pathways to Better U.S. Higher Education

Dean Rachel Van Cleave authors a chapter on how to recreate legal education for a modern audience in a book focused on saving higher education in the United States. The book, Margins & Missions... Not Moonshots: Pathways to a Better U.S. Higher Education, states that higher education institutions face unprecedented peril from a perfect storm of economic and demographic challenges. Declining enrollments, drastically reduced state and federal government funding, and excessive growth of support and administration costs have left many universities in a cash-strapped financial conundrum. In addition, student loan debt exceeds U.S. credit card debt and serious questions are being raised about the ROI (cost to value) of a college degree. To address these critical issues, over 30 diverse and prestigious thought leaders contribute innovative ideas to help re-imagine, re-engineer, and re-invent the business of higher education -- with a focus on the pragmatic, the achievable. -- Click the link above to learn more or to purchase the book.
