Associate Professor of Politics Jonathan Marks wrote an essay on the web site of the John William Pope Center for Higher Education Policy. He takes on some of the assertions in Jeffrey Selingo’s book, College (Un)Bound: The Future of Higher Education and What it Means for Students. Selingo is editor at large for The Chronicle of Higher Education. Marks concludes that the author builds a powerful case for the future of colleges, and states that “the challenge for those who care about the future of our colleges and universities is to reflect on what such an education requires and how it can be delivered at a reasonable cost.” The article was noted in The National Review.
Prof. Marks also wrote an article for Commentary titled Fight Fiercely Harvard (for the Humanities).
