Washington Monthly includes 7 Kresge partners on list of higher education innovators


Washington Monthly.pngNews magazine The Washington Monthly listed 16 top innovators in higher education in its Sept./Oct. issue on newsstands now, and seven of them are partners of The Kresge Foundation.

Each of the innovators was recognized for work that advocates for “new and better ways of serving students” by “pushing against resistant leadership, indifferent or threatened colleagues and a general institutional inertia that makes progress painfully slow.”

“We’re so proud to see so many familiar faces on this list of innovators,” said William F.L. Moses, managing director of Kresge’s Education Program. “We’re not surprised at all, because we know through our own work with many of these individuals and institutions that they are indeed pursuing the kind of change that isn’t always easy or painless, but changes that are so desperately needed to get colleges more focused on student success.”

The list included:

The Kresge Foundation Education team offers its warm congratulations to each of the 16 individuals named on the list.

Washington Monthly will host a panel discussion on the list of innovators with co-host New America from 3 to 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 15 in Washington, D.C. The conversation will be shared on social media using #WaMoCollege Guide, if you’d like to follow along. Live streaming will also be available on the New America website.
