The James G. Martin Center runs daily website commentary and is happy to accept unsolicited pitches.

Article topics include higher-education administration, finances, governance, academic standards, efficiency, enrollment, employment, pedagogy, and the curriculum, as well as the exposure of bias, politicization, corruption, and poor practices.

Though we typically publish national higher-ed commentary, we are also interested in policy changes, innovations, and news at the (North Carolina) state level.

For full-length articles (1,200-1,600 words), we pay an honorarium that starts at $200 and increases depending on the amount of web traffic. For short (500-word) reactions to breaking higher-ed developments, we pay $50.
