HEDL 500 - History of Higher Education


This course will engage students in an examination of the historical foundations of the American system of higher education from its colonial roots serving a small number of the privileged elite to the current-day dynamic system of institutions serving large numbers of students with increasingly diverse learning needs and career goals. Course participants will trace this systemic evolution within the framework of three major developments that spanned the 20 th century: the expansion and diversification of knowledge, the expansion of student enrollments with increasingly diverse learning needs, and the expansion and diversification of program delivery models.
