      During the past two years, 37 full-time faculty were either paid-to-retire, or laid off by Manhattanville College. Last month, in December 2022, for the first time in Manhattanville's history, tenured faculty were laid off in the arts and humanities, bringing the total number of full-time faculty that has been pushed away to 46. Manhattanville College was famous for its caring faculty, but will now follow a CUNY/SUNY format, with most courses taught by adjunct faculty. As much as the college claims on its front page to "put focus on the future," the reality is that of a f ..read more

Modeling civil unrest in the United States: some historical cases (Bryan Alexander*)

I’ve been modeling potential civil unrest in the US for a while, as some of you know (in terms of polycrisis, neonationalism, recent polls, after Trump, the 2020 election, 2018-2019, the 2016 election, egging on fears, and Sinclair Lewis). One way of doing this futuring work is by drawing on historical examples. History does not repeat, but some relevant  historical events can give us some rough ideas of how insurrections/civil war/rebellions/secession/etc. might play out.  At the least they give us examples to think with. Today I wanted to offer a group of these examples, drawn from ..read more

The Higher Education Inquirer has noticed the following schools in September 2022 that have received media attention: Rutgers University, Camden Indiana University ..read more

US Department of Education Continues to Project Increasing Higher Education Enrollment
Higher Education Inquirer
by Dahn Shaulis
5M ago
The US Department of Education (ED) continues to paint rosy projections about higher education enrollment despite economic and demographic realities.  Since 2011, higher education enrollment has declined every year--a more than decade long trend.  In addition, an enrollment cliff is just around the corner, a ripple effect of the 2008 Great Recession, when fewer American children were born.   ED is projecting enrollment losses in 2022 and 2023, but why is it projecting enrollment gains from 2024 to 2030?  Your guess is as good as mine.  In previous correspondences ..read more
