If we were to create a higher education report card for the entire higher education system, what elements would we grade? That depends, of course, on what you think the purpose of higher education is in our country. For discussion’s sake, let me suggest that there are three core and unequivocal roles our system must perform. First, we must conduct research that advances knowledge. Second, we must provide accessible, high quality undergraduate education, with good learning, development, and employment outcomes, to a large percentage of our population. And third, we need to run high quality graduate and professional degree programs that meet the specialized needs of our society. If you had to give a grade for how we are doing in each area, what grade would you assign?
