Summary

With the public’s continued focus on value and affordability, higher education finds itself at a critical juncture. Cost pressures and increased global demand for access have given rise to innovations that have unleashed new delivery models into the education marketplace. Such innovation is required if universities are to thrive, compete, and bring new relevance and meaning to the value of college in the 21st century.

On November 27, the Governance Studies program at Brookings, in conjunction with Northeastern University, hosted an event focused on higher education innovation. A panel of experts from government, academia and the private sector examined the results of a new national survey commissioned by Northeastern about Americans’ attitudes toward the future of higher education.
