In November 2016, The Chronicle of Higher Education will mark its 50th anniversary. To lead up to the occasion, we’ve chosen front pages featuring some of our reporting on events in higher education and the zeitgeist of the nation’s colleges and universities over the years.
Each week for the next 12 months, we’ll present one of those front pages online as well as in our print edition. These news articles represent moments of evolution and change, of course,but more than a few are salient today.
Whether you have read The Chronicle for years or have come to us only recently, we thank you for your readership and support. We couldn’t have done it without you, and we look forward to the next 50 years together.
William J. Bennett, chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities, said colleges were failing at their “great task of transmitting a culture.”
