Higher Education: On the Chopping Block

Since the economic downturn, enrollment in the University of Hawaii system has risen sharply, but University budget cuts are looming. How did this marked discrepancy between supply and demand come to be, and how will students, teachers, and administrators deal with it? Dan Boylan moderates a panel of experts on the subject, and contributing editor Howard Dicus puts the problem in the context of the overall economy. This conversation was recorded on July 16th, 2009 in the PBS Hawaii studio.

Insights on PBS Hawaii is presented on Thursdays at 7:30 PM on PBS Hawaii.
