They express pride in the academic health of their institutions but are open to changes on tenure. On mental health on campus, they are aware of the problem but vary on solutions.

Inside Higher Ed’s annual survey finds them recognizing that higher education is in flux but disinclined to pursue some key changes. Most are optimistic about their finances and think race relations on their campus are good.
