Penn GSE AHEAD

NEW @ AHEAD

In this poll, we asked higher education leaders to share their views on what the presidential candidates and federal policymakers should know about improving college student success.

Penn AHEAD’s Laura Perna and Penn GSE’s Howard Stevenson, Vivian Gadsden, and Richard Ingersoll were among thirty-one education scholars who participated in the AERA Knowledge Forum that took place February 18-19, 2016 in Washington, DC.

Senior scholar Alan Ruby explains the need for stronger and more credible asssessment systems to help achieve development goals for equitable and inclusive education in his guest blog for The World Bank.

In her new report in conjunction with the Lumina Foundation, PennAHEAD Executive Director Laura Perna identifies ways to improve connections between academic research and policy­makers. 

Senior Scholar Peter Eckel and Cathy Trower, President of Trower & Trower, Inc. explain why they think boards are not adding the value that is crutial to institutional success when colleges and universities need them the most.

Sexual violence is a common topic of discussion among higher education leaders. In this poll, we asked higher education leaders to share their perceptions about sexual violence on campus.  

Penn AHEAD Senior Scholar Peter Eckel and Cathy Trower, President of Trower & Trower, Inc., offer specific steps that boards should heed when considering issues of campus diversity and equity.

In last week’s presidential address, I offered 10 actions that members of the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE) can take to ensure that higher education research continues to matter. I am delighted that I achieved one of my primary goals: to stimulate conversation about how we – as higher education researchers – are addressing important issues that face higher education.

One of my recommendations, in particular, has provoked welcome discussion.

As the Association for the Study of Higher Education (ASHE) prepares for its 40th annual conference November 5-8, 2015, in Denver, Colorado, Penn AHEAD is proud to be celebrating several connections with the organization. ASHE is dedicated to advancing the production of high-quality research on higher education, and is the leading professional research organization for higher education professionals. 

In this poll, we asked higher education leaders to share their perceptions about college affordability and the possibility of making community colleges tuition-free.
