Leonard Cassuto writes a monthly column for the
Chronicle of Higher Education called "The Graduate Adviser." He is currently studying the place of higher education in American culture, and his book on that topic, "The Graduate School Mess," is under contract at Harvard University Press.
Is higher education a business? Is it a service? A calling? Today student debt is rising, universities behave like corporations, and commentators deride college as "a scam." What's happening and what can we do about it? Professor Cassuto's lecture will address these questions and others.
