Former President, Trinity College (CT)

"With respect to college, people have thought that there were two important issues: first, getting in and being able to afford college, and second, to finish and have a degree. But very few people have asked the question, What happens in the four or five years in between those two points? And we're beginning to find out that what's going on in that black box called college is less than we had hoped; that maybe the 'higher' in higher education is lower than we think."
