Issues in Higher Education

Sometimes it is good to stop and reflect upon the issues that confront higher education in general. We here at Palmer sometimes escape the issues that larger general educational institutions must address, but nonetheless there are so many issues that may arise. The American Association of University Professors list the following as some of the more important issues of the day (https://www.aaup.org/issues-higher-education).

  • Academic Freedom
  • Institutional Governance
  • Contingent Faculty Positions
  • Compensation
  • Copyright
  • Distance Education
  • Accreditation
  • Sexual Harassment and Assault
  • Academic Research
  • Civility
  • Conflict of Interest
  • Collective bargaining
  • Hiring and Promotion
  • Diversity
  • Professional Ethics
  • Workload
  • Grading
  • Sexual Identity and Gender Identity
  • Evaluation
