Are We at Peak Higher Ed?

Are we at peak higher ed? My answer is no, but that answer depends on the definitions that we choose. Does peak higher ed refer to the number of schools, or the number of students enrolled? The number of people employed in higher ed (or just faculty), or the number of credentials granted? Tenure-track faculty jobs or the impact on the lives of graduates? The total number of colleges and universities, or the total value of the knowledge created? Bryan Alexander’s recent piece “American Higher Education Enrollment Declined. Again” would tend to support the peak-higher-ed hypothesis.
