About the Higher Education Initiative

The Higher Education Initiative focuses on policies that improve access and success, affordability, innovation, and quality in higher education. We also seek to serve as a watchdog over the higher education industry through analysis, research, reporting, and commentary on the Higher Ed Watch blog. Click here to view a list of our staff.

Our work is made possible through generous grants from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation; the Lumina Foundation; the Joyce Foundation; and the William and Flora Hewlett Foundation.
