Welcome to Grade Point, The Washington Post’s new higher education blog. Here, you’ll find a comprehensive daily report about colleges and universities nationwide, including breaking news, profiles of interesting people in higher education, stories about life on campus, and coverage of higher education policy and trends. We also will aim to include voices of those connected to higher education coast-to-coast, from university presidents to college freshmen.

Susan Svrluga will lead Grade Point, who along with higher education reporter Nick Anderson will delve into issues that affect parents, prospective college students, current college students, faculty, administrators, college graduates and policymakers. Jeffrey J. Selingo — a veteran higher education reporter, former editor of the Chronicle of Higher Education and an author and professor of practice at Arizona State University — will be a regular contributor to Grade Point.

Please contact us if there is a story we should cover, or if you would like to weigh in on any issue related to higher education.

White is The Post’s education editor.
