ABC nightly news with Charles Gibson (6:30 p.m. EDT) on Thursday, March 29, is planning to feature a segment on college costs, including interviews with the president of the University of Connecticut and with yours truly. Angst over rising college costs is not dissipating indeed is increasing, and ABC will offer a look at the issue. My guess is it will necessarily be a somewhat superficial look of the problem given time limitations, but a useful one nonetheless, calling more attention to the issue that is the focus of our professional lives at CCAP. Join us in watching the show.
Speaking of CCAP, we are on the verge of some expansion and the beginning of several new initiatives to intensify the debate over American universities and the way they operate. I prefer do things rather than talk about doing them, so I am not going to give you a list of all we hope to accomplish. Nonetheless, we are taking steps to enhance what we at CCAP do. Stay tuned.
