Everyone NEEDs to read this REPORT

I just skimmed the report, “For-Profit Colleges and Universities: America’s Least Cost and Most Efficient System of Higher Education,” from Nexus Research. I see significant praise for the University of Phoenix and other for-profit colleges. There is a great deal of data presented to respond to the current initiatives in Congress. I know that UOP sponsored this research group in or around 2008. This report should have listed the people that served on the “independent, nonpartisan research institute” so that the general public wouldn’t assume the research was biased by UOP.

The full report is available here: http://nexusresearch.org/1/NexusStudy8-31-10.pdf.

I’m going to make a plug for my employer, The College of St. Scholastica. The leadership here does an outstanding job of managing the operations associated with education. We actually had significant surplus of revenues last year when most public universities were struggling financially. We are efficient! This goes against the examples being used in the Nexus Report.

What did you think after reading the report?
