PROGRAM RATIONALE (please review the Program Guidelines for directions):

My varied coursework reflects my desire to become a part of higher education not just as scholar and instructor, but also as one focused on the realities of meeting an institution’s goals in the face of many challenges.

The common theme in this plan of study is “story.” Higher education has transformed throughout history and now finds itself in various forms that resemble one another in name only. Policy changes tell this story; enrollment numbers and tuition costs tell this story; research agendas tell this story; assessment tells this story; and so on, but all of these narratives fall under the label “college.”

I hope to explore the “story” of college, and what that means for various stakeholders. Though I am not sure of the exact direction this theme will take, I am immediately interested in the discrepancy between student expectations, university marketing, and their relationship to the various metrics applied to the quality or value of higher education.
