Chair: Zakiya Smith Ellis, New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education

Policy Maker or Practitioner: Zakiya Smith Ellis, New Jersey Secretary of Higher Education
Discussants: Dominique Baker, SMU, Robert Kelchen, Seton Hall University, Robert Shireman, The Century Foundation

For more than half a century, federal and state policy makers have been attempting to prevent colleges from taking unfair advantage of consumers, a problem that emerges especially when the education is financed by government grants and loans. This session features two policy makers who have been in the trenches, at both the federal and state level, developing policies on college accountability, as well as two researchers who have studied the ways that governments manage higher education.

Professor Dominique Baker will facilitate the session, asking the tough questions about the tensions between consumer choice and consumer protection, with attention to various regulatory approaches, including gainful employment’s debt/earnings ratios, the 90/10 rule, nonprofit status, default rates and graduation rates, and more. The panel will speak to the intentions behind policies, the disputes, the consequences, and their plans and predictions for the future.
