Higher education at crossroads in South Carolina
Last year, the Commission on Higher Education became a lightning rod in a debate that emerged during the legislative session concerning public higher education and governance.

Sanford fired back, telling colleges and universities that if they don’t want to work together for the good of the state, they would be better off leaving the system. The governor’s proposal was clearly a volley at Clemson University, the most entrenched and determined opponent of central control...

Iraq's students say, 'Welcome back, professor'
BAGHDAD After a decade of sanctions had left his physics lab a crumbling shell, Raad Mohammed decided it was time to go. In 1999, following a route trodden by thousands of the best and brightest of Iraq's academics, Dr. Mohammed escaped to Jordan without a goodbye to his lifelong colleagues. He was accompanied only by his wife, their suitcases, and handfuls of cash to bribe Mukhabarat agents at the border...In recent months, university presidents report that dozens of professors have returned from exile and are looking to get their jobs back. At the US-led Ministry of Higher Education, staffed by expatriate professors, hundreds more have e-mailed from England, the US, and the Netherlands to inquire about returning. They also want to offer donations and scholarships, and to start partnerships.
