What’s new this week:

In an essay for The Chronicle of Higher Education, Richard Legon, former president of the Association of Governing Boards of Universities and Colleges, explains that one of higher ed’s biggest problems is a clear lack of purpose–and calls for a bold new agenda.

Cathy Sandeen, chancellor of the University of Alaska at Anchorage, and Faculty Senate President Scott Downing weigh in for Inside Higher Ed on the shocking 41 percent cut to state funding made by the governor and how the university system is scrambling to prepare for a difficult future.

After initially running in The Conversation, University of Toledo Professor Marilynne Wood’s essay on the long-term negative effects of Flint’s water crisis on students also appeared in this Washington Post piece on the topic.

Evan Zoldan, professor of law at The University of Toledo, talks to The San Fernando Valley Business Journal about about the lawsuit filed by big pharma companies against the Trump administration for new federal regulation requiring drug makers to have the list price on television ads.
