Host: American Enterprise Institute. Three years after the Spellings Commission called for greater transparency and accountability in American higher education there is still little consensus on how policymakers should reform the postsecondary system to ensure that colleges and universities are held accountable for retaining and graduating their students. In response to this challenge, AEI has commissioned ten pieces of new research, each of which explores elements of the multifaceted accountability equation in higher education. At this AEI conference, leading higher education researchers and practitioners will present their findings and, together with discussants from across the policy and practitioner community, explore the findings’ implications for designing and implementing effective accountability systems for higher education.
