Diverse Conversations: Current Issues in Higher Education - Higher Education: With each passing decade, colleges and universities are faced with the task of responding to the spirit of the times. Those that deal with these trends and issues proactively often receive great rewards. However, those that do not keep up with the times face an uncertain future and, in extreme cases, failure. Recently, I spoke with Dr. Helen F. Giles-Gee to discuss some of the current issues in higher education and how colleges and universities should respond to them.
Dr. Helen F. Giles-Gee began her tenure as the 22nd president of University of the Sciences in Philadelphia on July 16, 2012. A well-respected and nationally-known scholar, educator and administrator, she brings more than 30 years of experience in higher education to the campus.
