Abstract (type = Abstract)
Higher education has a democracy problem, a democratic deficit. This is not a problem of tone deaf administrators, or of coddled students, or of over-privileged faculty. It is not just a problem of “access”, though that is a problem that must be addressed. It is a problem of underfunding and misplaced priorities and treating higher education as a zero sum game rather than a public good and a civic and political and economic resource for the polity. This is a deep institutional problem, and a deep political problem. The time is ripe to re-think through how to make higher education more democratic. Fortunately, we have many resources in the history of higher education in the US, and the history of American political thought, to bring to bear on how to address the deep institutional democratic deficit in higher education.
