"We have a number of forces that are converging here," says Van Reidhead, provost and vice president for academic affairs for East Stroudsburg University.
"The way the Obama administration is choosing to deal with this is to try to create carrots and sticks for states to contain the cost of tuition as a way of cutting the escalation and the cost of higher education," says Reidhead. "They believe that we are going to be able to reduce tuition costs by overhauling our instructional methods and by using more technology in smarter ways." While Reidhead acknowledges that transition has begun, he doesn't see significant cost-savings from the results so far. "Right now, it continues to be more expensive than face-to-face education and we still haven't cracked that nut," he says. "So we, as the enterprise of higher learning, with us having to be able to assure the learning competence of our students at a certain standard before we march them out of that door, the challenge is monumental." Despite the challenges, Reidhead holds hope for a workable solution. "The silver lining is that we're coming to a point in the national conversation from, the White House on down to those of us in the trenches, where we have a common understanding of how critical higher education is to us, that we are all in this boat together and that we all have to work together to find solutions that work for the many constituencies," he said.
