Controversies in Contemporary Higher Education

[WLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4] [CLOs: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6]

As you have learned throughout this course, there have been a number of controversies, issues, and challenges in higher education throughout different eras. Some of these controversies remain today or have evolved because of current societal, economic, political, or legal influences.

For this final project, you will select one of these controversies affecting contemporary higher education. In a 10-12 page paper, you will then trace this controversy through various eras of higher education in the United States. In your project, you will also provide an overview of the current state of this controversy. You will examine the socioeconomic, political, and legal factors.

In your analysis you must identify all of the stakeholders impacted by this controversy. You will forecast how that controversy may impact higher education in the future.

Your work must be supported by appropriate academic and empirical sources as detailed in the annotated bibliography project description (see Week 4). All work must be properly formatted according to APA (6th edition) format.

Carefully review the Grading Rubric (Links to an external site.) for the criteria that will be used to evaluate your assignment.
