MA in Government alum (2001) Jeffrey Selingo is the author of College (Un)boud: The Future of Higher Education and What it Means for Students. The book examines the value of a four-year degree in the United States and argues that the higher education system is broken. Mr. Selingo worries that universities have evolved into big businesses that fail to provide students with concrete, competitive skills.
Mr. Selingo is currently an editor at large for the Chronicle of Higher Education.
This morning, Mr. Selingo gave an interview about the book on NPR. You can listen to the interview here.
