Question Description

Not all issues in higher education lead to negative consequences; some lead to long-term benefits for institutions and society. However, higher education leaders must be readily aware of the emerging issues in order to mitigate potential consequences and maximize potential benefits. These issues must be considered in the context of the current political climate.
