More than 100 American higher education administrators and experts were invited to join a panel of advisors who have been asked to participate in two semi-annual surveys as part of their advisory roles. The Fall 2015 survey examined initiatives and strategies to improve degree completion rates, the quality of student learning and college affordability, and respondents evaluated and rated the initiatives and strategies.

Military educational institutions, from the Army and Air Force War Colleges, and civilian institutions, from American Public University System (APUS) and Kansas State to the University of Alabama, recently spent two days together at the Army University’s first higher education symposium at Ft.
I recently read an article related to the “unprecedented” budget cuts facing the LSU System. System President John Lombardi warned the Chancellors of the various campuses that the system is looking at a 23.28 percent cut across the board unless the projected state budget for 2011-2012 changes. A primary reason for the heightened focus is the expiration of the Stimulus Act funding for higher education that provided nearly $300 million to the state colleges and universities in Louisiana alone.
