Gross, Jacob P. K.; Hossler, Don; Ziskin, Mary; Berry, Matthew S. – Review of Higher Education, 2015
The use of merit criteria in awarding institutional aid has grown considerably and, some argue, is supplanting need as the central factor in awarding aid. Concurrently, the accountability movement in higher education has placed greater emphasis on retention and graduation as indicators of institutional success and quality. In this context, this…

Harbour, Clifford P.; Wolgemuth, Jennifer R. – Review of Higher Education, 2013
This article proposes a new paradigm to understand recent government policies that pose new barriers to student participation and divert students out of public higher education. We explain how the classic diversion paradigm, exemplified by Clark (1960) and Brint and Karabel (1989), is unable to account for this new form of student diversion. We…
