America's Most Innovative College Presidents

A Collaboration with Washington Monthly Magazine

This past weekend, the Obama administration released a trove of new data on the performance of America’s colleges and universities, including students’ post-collegiate earnings. This data will put significant new competitive pressure on schools to up their game and rethink how they deliver education. Some college presidents, however, are already doing just that: treating their schools like laboratories and providing potential road maps to success for peer institutions.

Please join New America and the Washington Monthly for a panel discussion on the new data and the college presidents who are driving change, as featured in the magazine's 2015 College Guide and Rankings.

Follow the discussion online using #CollegeGuide2015 and following @NewAmericaEd and @WashMonthly.
