U.S. Higher Education in Transition

American higher education is undergoing substantial change in terms of the way colleges and universities are organized and function. This change is being driven by the combined forces of demographics, globalization, economic restructuring, and information technology (IT)—forces that will, over the coming decade, lead us to adopt new conceptions of educational markets, organizational structures, how we teach, and what we teach. The purpose of this article is to describe these forces and speculate on their effects on higher education in the US and other mature industrial societies.
