There has been much discussion in the popular media over the last few years to the effect that there is a “crisis” with regard to men in higher education. There have been several angles in these reports, including arguments suggesting that men are declining in student ranks, or that women are outpacing their male counterparts. In any case, these reports have asked questions about where the men are if not in college; and what will be the consequences of this problem in terms of the workforce, families, or the potential nature and future of higher education. One could easily be both intrigued and concerned by the fact that (not unlike a number of other issues facing higher education) the conversation is being led by individuals and organizations generally outside higher education itself (e.g. governments and media).
