How to Market a College in a Troubled Locale

How to Market a College in a Troubled Locale

January 02, 2018

Antoine M. Garibaldi remembers what it used to be like for prospective students to visit the University of Detroit Mercy. When he took over as president, in 2011, anyone coming up Livernois Avenue, a main artery that borders the campus, encountered rusted light poles with dead bulbs along the scruffy streetscape. The city declared bankruptcy two years later.

Kenneth Garren, at 77 one of the oldest college presidents in the nation, recalls the admonition of a history professor in describing the challenge facing Lynchburg College.

Flagler College President Joe Joyner Reflects on Transition to New Position

Flagler College President Joe Joyner Reflects on Transition to New ...

January 02, 2018

At this time last year, Joe Joyner was in a kind of limbo — not a negative limbo, mind you, more like a crossroads.  In January 2017, the longtime Superintendent of St. Johns County Schools was still straddling two worlds. Joyner had already given the district notice that he would be retiring after 13 years at the top post, clearing a path for Tim Forson, then deputy superintendent for operations, to be promoted.  And while Joyner had already been selected to succeed William Abare as the next president of Flagler College, it would be another seven months before he would officially move into the president’s executive suite in Ponce de Leon Hall.

Sweet Briar's Curriculum Comes at a Cost

Sweet Briar's Curriculum Comes at a Cost

December 19, 2017

Sweet Briar College (VA) is eliminating more than 10 percent of its faculty, including tenured faculty positions, as it puts in place a new core curriculum and restructures academic programs. The small private women’s liberal arts college, which was nearly closed under a previous administration in 2015, will cut by almost half the number of majors it offers starting in the next academic year, from 33 to 17. It will shift its core curriculum away from traditional general education courses and toward classes administrators say are better fits for the latest trends in students’ academic interests and careers.
