UT Arlington named "Next Generation University"
UT Arlington was one of six universities named as a "Next Generation University" by the Washington D.C.-based New America Foundation, Benziga, PR Web and the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reported. The foundation based its findings on a statistical analysis of student outcomes, research productivity and enrollment trends. According to Jeff Selingo, editor-at-large for the Chronicle of Higher Education, the project is meant to provide “a new playbook” for other public universities to consider. He said the project provides information that can be used by policymakers at the state and federal levels in discussion about the re-authorization of the Higher Education Act.
