Finding Work After College More Important Than Graduating, Americans Say In Gallup Poll
The Huffington Post
In finding the right college, Americans care less about whether its students are likely to graduate, and more about whether the ones that do land a solid job, a Gallup poll released Friday finds. Forty-one percent identified the percentage of graduates able to obtain a good job as the most important factor in choosing a college, with the percentage increasing among respondents who have higher monthly incomes. The price of the college, 37 percent said, was the most important, and just 16 percent selected the percentage of students who graduate from the college or university. Both of those choices tended to be more vital to lower income respondents in the poll.

Student Affairs Technology Unconference
ACPA
ACPA is pleased to support and co-sponsor the #SAtech Unconference movement this summer. The Unconferences seek to connect those in our profession interested in learning and sharing knowledge about technology in student affairs; to expose professionals to the “Unconference” model of professional development / learning; and to foster unique opportunities for networking, by building something together, on-site, through the common interest groups. There will be multiple Student Affairs Technology Unconference events happening throughout the US and Canada in 2013. What started in Boston in 2011 with one event has expanded to multiple events and counting throughout the US and Canada. Join us in Boston, Chicago, Toronto, or another Unconference city this summer!

Competition And Controversy In Global Rankings
University World News
Higher education is becoming more competitive by the day. Universities are scrambling for scarce research funds and public support. They are trying to recruit from increasingly suspicious and cynical students. The specter of online education is haunting all but the most confident institutions. Rankings are also increasingly competitive. Universities need validation that will attract students and big-name researchers and justify appeals for public largesse. Students need guidance about where to take their loans and scholarships. Government agencies have to figure out where public funds are going.

President Obama's Interfaith And Community Service Campus Challenge
ACPA
The Third Annual President's Interfaith and Community Service Campus Challenge National Gathering will occur on September 23-24, 2013 at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. The gathering will be an opportunity for students, staff, and administrators to share experiences, learn from experts, and meet administration officials who share a commitment to community service with an interfaith engagement component. Currently, more than 400 institutions of higher education have responded to the challenge. They include community colleges, public and private universities, and professional schools. Schools indicate their participation by having the Chief Executive Officer or President appoint a staff member campus lead. Each institution designs its own program of interfaith/community service. When the sign-up form is returned to edpartners@ed.gov the institution will be invited to regional and national gatherings, webinars and other opportunities to share what the institution is doing and learn from others. Registration and more details can be found at this website.
