​ As I start my year as AUPHA Board Chair, I must look back before looking forward. The first AUPHA meeting I attended was in 1994 in San Diego. I was a Ph.D. student and was presenting a paper with Dr. Larry Gamm.  At that meeting, I met so many icons in the field and was surprised how welcoming they were to a Ph.D. student. I have experienced that welcoming feeling time and time again and from my perspective it is a cornerstone of why AUPHA is important to me. Since my first meeting I have seen AUPHA change and grow.  AUPHA is now more inclusive and diverse.  By that I mean both in terms of organizational and individual members.  However, even though progress ...

“Course Hero.com” is one of several thousand sites selling academic support for baccalaureate and graduate students. The sites are unsupervised, presenting opportunities for several varieties of academic and commercial malfeasance. Course Hero’s funding—$14 million from private sources— and fee structure suggest that less than 1 million students buy the service. That’s a worrisome percentage of the roughly 21 million post-high school US enrollment.  It also suggests that the site’s claim to be “a platform of more than 10 million students and educators across the globe” might be inflated. Course Hero’s history suggests that many leave in disgust. Although it ...

  The Graduates we Graduate Congratulations for another successful year as we educate the next generation of leaders. I am sure we all have our share of stories surrounding our graduating classes. Typical of most universities, my university has a luncheon to celebrate the graduates and their families. What I most enjoy is the private faculty-student roast, where we toss nice jabs at each other. The graduating class I have had the opportunity to work with over the last two years represents a diverse group of students from 12 states and 19 undergraduate universities.   Thirty-percent worked before entering graduate school, 25 percent speak a second-language, ...
