Changing Higher Ed Podcast 107 with Guest Dr. Ashley Finley

The American Association of Colleges and Universities (AAC&U) has issued its new report that will have an impact on shaping college curriculum for student workforce success.

How do colleges and universities define and articulate learning outcomes, provide access to engaging learning experiences, and assess student success?

A new M&A model for Higher Education has taken shape with the Pennsylvania’s State System of Higher Education (PASSHE) merger. PASSHE has 14 public universities, and most of its institutions teach to the undergrad and master’s level and are regional institutions. The system has one research institution.

These institutions primarily serve rural areas, which is an area that is changing, especially due to the growing inequality in the United States. As a result, the system has seen a 27% decline in enrollment over the past 11-12 years. It currently enrolls 89,000 degree-seeking students, which is a large drop from its previous high of 120,000 students.
