Senior Associate, The Institute for Higher Education Policy, District of Columbia
Clifford Adelman went to the U.S. Department of Education on a one-year fellowship in 1979 and didn't leave until 2006. He wrote the study on which the Nation at Risk Commission's high school curriculum recommendations were based (1983), and designed the project that produced its higher education sequel, Involvement in Learning (1984). Since fall 2006, he has been working on international matters for the Institute for Higher Education Policy, producing four monographs, including: The Bologna Process for U.S. Eyes: Re-learning Higher Education in the Age of Convergence (2009) and The Spaces Between Numbers: Getting International Data on Higher Education Straight (2009). His recent action projects include serving as principal domestic advisor to Lumina Foundation's "Tuning USA" and designer/co-manager of "Win-Win," a pilot in eight community colleges to identify students with unclaimed associate's degree-qualifying work and get the degrees awarded.
