The Pope Center Wants You—to Write about Higher Education!

By Pope Center Staff


June 22, 2015

The John W. Pope Center for Higher Education Policy is seeking writers knowledgeable about higher education to contribute original articles to its website. The Pope Center is a Raleigh, North Carolina-based think tank that seeks to improve higher education; part of our mission is to serve as a forum for ideas about how to reform higher education from a free market perspective. As such, we constantly seek new ideas and contributions for our website.

Article topics include higher education administration, finances, governance, standards, efficiency, enrollment, employment, pedagogy, and the curriculum, as well as exposure of bias, politicization, corruption, and poor practices. Samples of past articles can be found at

Our website receives an average of 25,000 visitors per month, and our readers tend to be influential in higher education reform circles, generally coming from academia, the media, reformist think tanks, and the political world. The Center’s web content has a visible impact on the national discussion of higher education reform. Additionally, blog entries about the articles will be posted on Phi Beta Cons, the higher education blog of the National Review.

The Pope Center has a format and approach for its stories that is pretty consistent, so there is likely to be a fair amount of editing, with the final version to be approved by the author, of course. The preferred length for articles is between 900 and 1,400 words. If we post your article, we will pay an honorarium that starts at $200 and increases depending on the amount of web traffic.
