As part of the C-SPAN bus’s “Big Ten” tour this fall, Washington Journal will interview university officials from around the country.
We will discuss public policy issues that impact higher education; college costs and student debt; university admission policies, curricula, and academic standards; and how universities are preparing graduates for careers and adult life.
We hope you'll join us throughout the fall for this extended conversation about third-level education in America.
