Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust ’68 Critiques New “College Scorecard”

In a New York Times letter to the editor, Harvard President Drew Gilpin Faust ’68 critiques the federal government’s new “College Scorecard.”

From the letter…
I graduated from Bryn Mawr College in 1968, and my first job was working for the Department of Housing and Urban Development. My starting salary was low, but I was inspired by the civil rights movement and the War on Poverty to regard public service as an important calling. I went on to graduate school, joined the faculty at the University of Pennsylvania and ultimately became the president of Harvard University. Should Bryn Mawr have been judged based on what I was paid in my first year at HUD?
