Recent HER author and former editor honored with Oustanding Dissertation Award

posted Dec 12, 2009, 10:17 AM by Ezekiel Kimball   [ updated Aug 30, 2010, 10:13 AM by peter moran ]

David A. Tandberg, a Volume 5 author and former editor of Higher Education in Review has received the 2008 Outstanding Dissertation Award from the Politics of Education Association. Tandberg’s dissertation, entitled “Politics, Budgetary Tradeoffs, and State Funding of Public Higher Education,” examines the political and budgetary forces that influence state appropriations to public higher education. A similar purpose underscores Tandberg’s recently published article in Higher Education in Review. Based upon data covering all 50 states over 24 years, Tandberg’s analysis indicates that political attributes have significant, theoretically predictable effects on the share of state funding public higher education receives.
