Morris Published online: 16 February 2018 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC, part of Springer Nature 2018 Increasingly, colleges and universities in the U.S. are expected to achieve greater efficiency, equity, and improved outcomes for students in the process of selecting, attending, and completing college. This bar of expectations is high because postsecondary education is not only important to individuals, but also to the culture and economy, national priorities, and global competitiveness. Considering the important role that postsecondary education plays across every sector, it is not surprising that professional associations, corporations, and state and federal agencies continually seek to understand and influence postsecondary education. The importance of higher education to individuals and the society has prompted national debates ranging from curricular content to issues of access, quality, and cost. As a result, numerous reports by blue ribbon commissions, associations, foundations, and agencies have presented the challenges and recommedations that need urgent and sustained attention to improve postsecondary education. One of the first reports to galvanize national attention was the 1983 report A Nation at Risk by the National Commission on Excellence in Education established by Secretary of Education Terrel Bell to examine quality in education (https://www2.ed.gov/pubs/NatAtRisk/index.html).
