The online source for news, opinion and jobs for all of higher education.
Introduction
Inside Higher Ed is the online source for news, opinion and jobs for all of higher education. Whether you're an adjunct or a vice president, a grad student or an eminence grise, we've got what you need to thrive in your job or find a better one: breaking news and feature stories, provocative daily commentary, areas for comment on every article, practical career columns, and a powerful suite of tools to help higher education professionals get jobs and colleges identify and hire employees.

Inside Higher Ed was founded in 2004 by three executives with decades of expertise in higher education journalism and recruitment. We believed that higher education was evolving quickly and radically, and that the time was right for new models of providing information and career services for professionals in academe.


So we conceived of Inside Higher Ed with a few underlying principles:


Excellence. We believe deeply in the many missions of colleges and universities: shaping minds, training workers, engaging in discovery. To carry out those missions, the people who work in higher education need the best news and information possible about their professional world. By "best," we mean above all accurate, thorough, and reliable. We also care about history, about context, about nuance -- one of the reasons we love being part of higher education is that the toughest issues here aren't simple. But that doesn't mean that you'll necessarily like everything we publish on this site: We take our watchdog role seriously and will do plenty of hard-hitting investigative reporting, sparing no sacred cows. And just because information is authoritative doesn't mean it has to be bland or boring: We want you to have a little fun when you visit Inside Higher Ed, which is why you'll find cartoons and humor columns amid our breaking news, incisive commentary and freewheeling blogs.


Accessibility. You don't need an expense account any more to get the best news, information and career services. At Inside Higher Ed, we've eliminated or lowered barriers based on cost. All of our content is free -- so everyone can be an insider. Job seekers, too, can use virtually all of our services without paying a dime. And employers will find a comprehensive suite of jobs services at prices that every institution can afford. In every way, this is a site for everyone in higher education.


Community. If we're doing our jobs well, everyone who works in or cares about higher education should feel, every day, that this site is produced for them. This is a gathering place for all of the many constituents and diverse institutions that make up the rich web of higher education. At Inside Higher Ed, you'll find no pecking orders or second-class citizens. We invite you -- no, actively encourage you -- to add your views to our mix. Comment on an article. Submit a letter to the editor. Send article ideas or tips to our staff members. If you have a computer (or heck, a piece of paper and a stamp), you've got a voice here.

For more information about the site and the people who produce it, please visit our staff page. For any other questions you might have, please contact us at info@insidehighered.com. And if you have comments on or suggestions about what you see on the site this week, please e-mail us at info@insidehighered.com and let us know what you think.
