With reduced federal and state support for higher education, higher operating costs (which I do not understand) and the in roads being made by online courses, universities face many challenges. One would hope for some innovative solutions.
A story in The Chronicle of Higher Education reports that Las Positas College in California is seeking donors to underwrite classes at $5500 per class. Maybe a professor could fund their class using Kickstarter. Maybe Walmart would like to underwrite a business class with all the cases based on Walmart. Ahh...the opportunities are endless.
If anyone has a donation and no professor, let me know. I know a few great professors.
