Some of my own material:

This brief history of Jews and higher education was a talk I gave at the first Consultation on Emerging Jewish Adulthood ( in June 2008.

Jewish Higher Education in America,” a paper that brings three Jewish thinkers (Hirsch, Rosenszweig and Kaplan) into dialogue with the history of American higher education.

“Is Education Good for the Jews:” Source sheet.

A Theology of Questions,” an essay on the lost Big Questions of higher education.

A few good articles to read on the historical question of Jews in higher education:

College Youth and the Future of Judaism(1955)

Abraham Lavander, Studies of Jewish College Students (1977)

Yitz Greenberg: Jewish survival and the college campus (1968)
