A People#xE2;#xAC;"s History of American Higher Educationfocuses on those participants who may not have been members of elite groups, yet who helped push elite institutions and the country as a whole towards different goals and behaviors.

Hutcheson introduces readers to both social and intellectual history, providing invaluable perspectives and methodologies for graduate students and faculty members alike. A People#xE2;#xAC;"s History of American Higher Educationsurveys the varied characteristics of the diverse populations constituting or striving for the middle class through educational attainment, providing a narrative that unites often divergent historical fields.
