Speeding up on curves — from educause.edu by Bradley Wheeler


Higher education faces a number of important curves, but I’ll focus first on just two:

  1. The finance of higher education is increasingly moving from a public to a private good, leading to increasing cost and price pressures (particularly for state-supported institutions).
  2. The increasing digitization of education and research favors greater scale while it also enables potential new substitutes for colleges and universities.
