Hearn TIAA headline

In an essay, "Reframing Decision Making in the Current Crisis," published by the TIAA Institute, Jim Hearn challenges industrial production rubrics and labels often applied to gage the efficiency and effectiveness of higher education institutions. Instead, he advises his students (current and future higher education leaders) to think more broadly about the role of our colleges and universities, "not only as factory-like enterprises, but also as cultural institutions, political arenas, vehicles for social mobility, and agencies chartered by society to develop engaged democratic citizens." 

His essay is part of the TIAA Institute's Voices of Expertise & Experience: Insights to Inform Responses to COVID-19’s Impact on Financial Security and Higher Education series.
