Those of us in higher education celebrate the New Year in August. As we near Winthrop’s convocation ceremony that heralds the academic New Year beginning Aug. 20, I encourage my colleagues throughout the state and beyond to renew our resolution to ensure that the education we deliver is valuable for our students and our society.

In recent weeks, I’ve been asked frequently to comment on the cost of higher education. Of course, I try to turn that conversation into a discussion about the value of higher education, rather than the cost. But, before I make the cost-value flip, I take advantage of the opportunity to explain that there is a direct, inverse relationship between the cost of tuition and fees at public colleges within a state and the funding that state provides to its public colleges and universities.
