This is an early take by Inside Higher Ed on what the Trump victory might mean for higher education.

Observers suggested that the best indicators of what a Trump administration might focus on are policies already proposed by Republican Congress members. This uncertainty comes from the fact that the Trump campaign largely ignored higher education or made generic and confusing statements.

The article identified three potential targets for regulatory roll-back:

  • The Obama administration's assault on for-profit colleges.
  • The Obama administration's focus on sexual assault on campus.
  • The Obama administration's efforts to strengthen labor unions and benefits on campus.
