My questions/thoughts revolve around:
- What is my personal philosophy or purpose of higher education?
- What's the who, when, why and where of higher education in the U.S
- Are there multiple purposes of higher education (yes), if so, what are they? Who do these purposes actually serve?
- Has the purpose changed over time? What was the purpose when higher education institutions were first formed versus now?
I am sure I will think of more in the future. For now, what are your thoughts? What is the purpose of higher education in the U.S? If you truly begin to consider this question, you will see that the answer may be more complicated than one would first think!
Cheers and see you soon,
