Trends Inside Higher Education | Spring 2021

Cover (Trends Inside Higher Education | Spring 2021)

Within the world of higher education, what are some of today’s key trends—and what are some implications for institutions of higher learning? While the COVID-19 pandemic has drawn much of our focus for a year now, we continue to keep our eyes on other trends and forces. This issue broadly explores trends inside higher education.

We’ve organized Trends using STEEP:



  • Social: How people think, behave, and interact, including beliefs, values, culture, and lifestyle

  • Technology: How people use technology (including hardware and software), how society relies on technology, and how technology affects society

  • Economic: Macro- or microeconomics, including global trends, anything related to jobs and skills needed for jobs, and industry shifts

  • Environmental: Our external surroundings, including sustainability and our evolving workplaces, cities, and living spaces

  • Political: Public policy, governmental systems, the people within them, and the effects of government decisions on our citizens and communities



Each trend includes a brief trend summary, a footnoted source, and discussion questions to help you analyze and act on the trend.
