    • Shift to U.S.-style higher education in Bavaria October 30, 2020
      Advocates of a new Bavarian law that could usher in more U.S.-style stratification of universities and allow institutions to charge international students fees hope that the rest of Germany will soon follow suit. The changes are being personally championed by Markus Söder, Bavaria’s conservative state premier and one of the frontrunners to succeed Angela Merkel […]
    • State voters and higher education October 30, 2020
      Four years ago, officials in Nevada’s higher education system were accused of misleading state lawmakers as the Legislature was thinking about changing the way colleges and universities were being funded. Now, legislators are asking voters in this year’s elections to strip the Nevada System of Higher Education’s Board of Regents of its autonomy under the […]
    • Long-term COVID-19 symptoms have implications for colleges October 30, 2020
      While college administrators and decision makers have stressed that they are taking the COVID-19 pandemic and its attendant health and safety concerns very seriously, there has been an underlying assumption: students -- if they catch the disease -- will be fine. “At least 80 percent of our population is made up of young people, say, 35 […]
    • Liberty University's Falkirk think tank pushed the boundaries on political messaging, but nonprofit restrictions remain murky October 30, 2020
      Viewed solely as a political advertisement on social media this election year, it would be largely unremarkable. A tightly framed photo shows President Donald Trump, eyes closed, hands folded. Several people lay hands on his shoulders. Text above the photo cites the Bible -- the First Epistle of Paul to Timothy -- and reads, “Pray […]

      Jared Nally, editor in chief of The Indian Leader, the nation’s oldest Native American student newspaper, said he began to notice a “media blockade” over the summer by administrators at Haskell Indian Nations University, a tribal college in Kansas.

    • Pandemic prompts colleges and universities to consider adding chief health officers October 29, 2020
      Since the pandemic began, Preeti Malani’s name has appeared in news articles, television segments and thousands of in-boxes. Her comments are consistent and confident.

    • Unmasking another white professor allegedly posing as a person of color October 29, 2020
      Another week, another unmasking of a white professor allegedly posing as a person of color: this time it’s Kelly Kean Sharp, a scholar of African American history who resigned abruptly Tuesday from her assistant professorship at Furman University. Like other apparent racial fraudsters before her, Sharp was outed by an anonymous post on Medium. The […]
    • Racial disparities in higher education funding could widen during economic downturn October 29, 2020
      Judith Moore, a mathematics professor at the College of Southern Maryland, was overseeing a test last term in the way it’s done these days.
