Access, Affordability, and the Future of Independent Colleges
Jon Fansmith and Lorelle Espinosa, dotEDU
The common narrative surrounding independent colleges and universities is that they are either elite ivy institutions or small colleges on the brink of closure. Barbara Mistick, president of the National Association of Independent Colleges and Universities, dispels that black and white view on this episode of dotEDU.
Mistick also talks about how private schools are increasingly concerned with access and affordability, and how her years as president of Wilson College informs her work as head of a national organization serving a diverse range of institutions.
