Drawing from a case study with 88 participants, the purpose of this…

Rooksby, Jacob H.; Collins, Christopher S. – Review of Higher Education, 2016
Trademarks figure prominently in college and university brand formation efforts. Trademarks are intangible rights that allow institutions to define and protect aspects of their identities important to them as they engage in markets. This multiple-method study, grounded in legal and policy research, provides a first look at how institutions are…

Yan, Lau; Rosen, Harvey S. – Review of Higher Education, 2016
Observers have expressed concern about growing inequality in resources across universities. But are universities really becoming more unequal? We argue that the typical approach of examining endowment growth alone is not sensible. In line with the literature on household inequality, we focus instead on a comprehensive income measure. We find that…

Kelchen, Robert – Review of Higher Education, 2016
Student fees make up 20% of the total cost of tuition and fees at the typical four-year public, yet little research has been conducted to examine institutional-level and state-level factors that may affect student fee charges. I use panel data to find that institutional selectivity and athletics spending do not influence student fee levels.…

He, Ye; Hutson, Bryant – Review of Higher Education, 2016

O'Meara, KerryAnn; Bennett, Jessica Chalk; Neihaus, Elizabeth – Review of Higher Education, 2016
Early career faculty bring many expectations to the door-steps of their new academic homes. Yet such expectations are often left unsaid. Unfortunately, what is left unsaid can be a major factor in faculty departure. This study makes a distinct contribution to the departure literature by examining the psychological contracts and work expectations…

Palmer, Jane E.; Alda, Erik – Review of Higher Education, 2016
Sexual assault on college campuses is persistently underreported; therefore, Clery Act sexual assault statistics are not strong indicators of incidence.
