Editorial Reviews


"Kelchen takes a wide scope that tracks the history of efforts to prod colleges to do better, while also looking at the current environment and giving clues about what's to come."

(Inside Higher Ed)

"Kelchen’s book reflects a deep knowledge of the field and is an outstanding work of scholarship."

(William R. Doyle, Vanderbilt University, coauthor of Rethinking College Student Retention)

"New and proposed accountability measures have the potential to reshape the higher education landscape in the coming years, both for better and for worse. Robert Kelchen deftly navigates the complicated patchwork of the current system, analyzing the benefits and drawbacks, while also providing valuable guidance to policymakers, practitioners, and researchers."

(Doug Webber, Temple University)

"Robert Kelchen’s Higher Education Accountability provides the most comprehensive top-to-bottom review of higher education accountability efforts currently available. Robert effectively engages the empirical literature but does so in a way that is accessible and actionable. Students, researchers, and practitioners will all find this volume to be helpful."

(David Tandberg, State Higher Education Executive Officers Association)

"Higher education accountability is all the rage, at least rhetorically, amongst policy makers of all stripes and at all levels. Kelchen shows how different and competing stakeholders have tried to make higher education accountable from the colonial period to the present―and underscores why accountability policy is so hard to do well."

(Amy Laitinen, New America)

Book Description

The first comprehensive overview charting the accountability of higher education.
