Views on Higher Education in 2022
Over the last three years, the pandemic has intensified shifts in the way Americans feel about higher education. Several organizations have been monitoring the perception of higher education through public opinion research to better understand how the uncertainty we’ve experienced has impacted views on higher education.
On Thursday, August 18, 2022, Third Way hosted a conversation to dive into some of the latest research with our own Shelbe Klebs (Education Policy Advisor, Third Way), Sophie Nguyen (Senior Policy Analyst for Education Policy, New America), Travis Reindl (Senior Communications Officer, The Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation), and Lexi West (Senior Associate, The Pew Charitable Trusts). The experts offered remarks on toplines of their research and shared key themes consistent in their work, including a desire for greater institutional accountability and transparency.
