What Happens to Quality in an Age of Disruption?

At a time when technology is “disrupting” higher education and the federal government proposes “return on investment” as the measure of quality, this issue explores the “value” of a college education and what quality ought to mean—for institutions as well as for policymakers.  Also included are articles on the status of the liberal arts over the past century, the growing importance of information literacy, the need to go beyond inclusion, the use of writing as a form of assessment in science education, and the fate of liberal education in Japan.
