Reviews

"The editors and the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education are to be commended for the substantive and cogent narrative and analysis presented. Scholars interested in regional history and public policy will eagerly embrace these works." - Amy Wells Dolan, Associate Dean and Associate Professor of Higher Education, University of Mississippi, USA

"Embracing both excellence and expansive opportunity, the American West inspired unprecedented achievements in public higher education, a story well told in Higher Education in the American West: Regional History and State Contexts. Its companion volume, Public Policy Challenges Facing Higher Education in the American West, sets forth the challenges confronting educators and policy leaders in the West and invites their response." Paul Lingenfelter, past President, State Higher Education Executive Officers
