Trust in HE more than in HE Institutions

March 2018

Based on a phone survey among 1100 adults, Gallup concludes that American adults have significantly more trust in “higher education” (36%) than in “Colleges & Universities” (23%).

Not surprisingly, Republicans’ trust is significantly lower (26% HE – 12% institutions) than among Democrats (50% – 37%). But even for Higher Education, only 55% of American display positive confidence and 43% have only some or even little confidence in higher education.
