Inside Higher Ed releases 2016 Survey of Chief Academic Officers

January 25, 2016

Provosts across the US are concerned about the future of liberal arts education and general education altogether, according to Inside Higher Ed’s 2016 Survey of College and University Chief Academic Officers. The Gallup-conducted survey received responses from 539 provosts or chief academic officers, and the results also revealed that these leaders have widespread doubts about operating budgets and the ability for institutions to preserve academic integrity in the face of tightening constraints. On student-facing issues such as trigger warnings, leadership remained divided. By contrast, an Academica StudentVu survey performed last year showed that students were generally in favour of trigger warnings. Inside Higher Ed | Report
