A History of American Higher Education The topic on the Proliferation of Problems in Higher Education was the most interesting and insightful ONE as far as my career is concerned. In Chapter 8, Thelin (2011) analyzed the challenges that American universities and colleges faced between 1970 and 2000. This topic was also important because it answered my queries on the many difficulties that I should expect in my career. I learned about the internal problems that universities can solve as well as the external forces that are beyond the power of such institutions.

Therefore, the topic has shaped my thoughts on how I can assist my students to become better in
