Higher Education in Review

Main page for the Higher Education in Review (HER), student publication

Higher Education in Review (HER) is an independent, refereed journal published by graduate students in the Higher Education Program at The Pennsylvania State University.

The Journal is distributed to over 30 higher education graduate programs nationwide and is electronically available, free of charge, on our website. Authors must be currently enrolled graduate students or have written their manuscript while still in graduate school. Graduate students from a variety of disciplines and fields (e.g., education, sociology, economics, law, and psychology) are encouraged to submit their work for consideration. Submissions are accepted year-round.

Please visit our website at: http://www.higheredinreview.org. Full text for all articles from current and past issues is available.


Our mission is to make a substantive contribution to the higher education literature through the publication of high quality research studies, scholarly papers, and literature reviews in areas related to the university, the four-year college, and the community college. In so doing, we provide graduate students first-hand experience with the publishing process.
