Exploring Higher Education Around the World with Karin Fischer

May 23, 2019

CSHE Research Associate and higher education reporter Karin Fischer recently launched her blog on higher education, “Latitudes - what matters in global education - and why. “I will be writing to you from a specific point on the map, primarily 37.7749° N, 122.4194° W (also known as San Francisco),” she explains. "But I’ll take you around the globe, drawing on more than a decade of reporting on international higher education. My reporting has taken me to India to investigate corruption in student recruiting, to Portugal to explore new models for economic development, to Hong Kong to write about the growth of the liberal arts, and more. I’ve covered the breadth and depth of international education, and that global expertise will be reflected here.”

Karin’s articles have appeared in the Chronicle of Higher Education, the New York Times, EdSource, and the Washington Monthly. Her reporting on the Chinese-student phenomenon has been collected in a special publication, Chinese Journey: Student Migrations, Family Dreams and What Happens Next. Karin also regularly write about the intersection between education, economics, and culture in Trump’s America.
