American higher education is the envy of the world. Students flock to this country from all over, and the most highly ranked schools tend to be here. We should be proud! American higher education is a mess. With high costs, low graduation rates, unhappy faculty members and coddled students, our universities are about to be radically disrupted by massive, technologically driven change. A good thing, too! How to reconcile these opposing views? At a time when ambitious business-school professors and salivating entrepreneurs...

Higher education is available throughout the metro area, including at four-year universities, community colleges and schools that offer certification in nearly every field. The District has a premier college for deaf and hearing-impaired students in Gallaudet University. Corcoran College of Art and Design, also in the District, offers bachelor's and master's degrees. The U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis is the area's most heralded defense-oriented institution, but it is not alone in that field.

PRESIDENT BARACK OBAMA: We might have to run her for something someday. That was terrific. Thank you, Stephanie (ph). I want to also introduce Yvonne (ph) Thomas (ph), who's Stephanie's (ph) proud mother. And we appreciate everything that you've done. And Stephanie's (ph) father, Albert, is around here as well.

This piece is part of an On Leadership roundtable on higher education and the 21st-century leadership challenge for university presidents.

And as they have increased tuition to make up for the lost revenue, they have gotten an earful from students, parents and state legislators. Even private universities are...
