Higher Education: Take Note from Non-Profits
November 7, 2009 § Leave a comment
In his article regarding current funding models for higher education, Jack Stripling outlines the need for change. With state and other government funding decreasing, colleges and universities are forced to explore other ideas. Stripling points out that like many non-profits, higher education institutions have looked to the communities they inhabit for contributions, only to be rebuffed for their lack of actual community involvement. Many have sought to create outreach programs in order to offer more to their local constituencies.
