Addressing the College Affordability Crisis:
The Rise of the $10,000 Degree

with

Dr. Maria Hernandez Ferrier
President, Texas A&M University - San Antonio

Dr. Dan R. Jones
President, Texas A&M University - Commerce

Dr. Ann McGlashan
Baylor University Professor and Texas Chapter President of the AAUP

Dr. Raymund Paredes
Commissioner, Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board

Governor Rick Perry, in his 2011 State of the State address, challenged the Texas public higher-education community to craft bachelor’s degrees costing no more than $10,000.  One year later, a number of Texas universities are answering the governor’s call. Will the existence of $10,000 degrees at a few institutions today spark a popular demand to expand these programs across the Lone Star State? Or are the existing programs simply anomalies?
