Comments from the Judges
“This entry shines a light on little-known education issues. I couldn’t stop reading, especially his piece on rural colleges. It is clear that he has immense respect for his subjects.”
“Great job putting a face to crucial higher education trends, adding a different dimension to those that have been often discussed and explaining relatively under-reported phenomena.”
