Capital University Promises Half-Price Tuition to Encourage Service

Capital University Promises Half-Price Tuition to Encourage Service

September 05, 2018

If you’re in the business of doing good or helping your community, Capital University (OH) is looking to say thanks and pay it forward in a new way.  Beginning next year, Capital University is promising a tuition break for undergraduates whose families are in “mission-centered” careers in nonprofit and public-service work. The initiative, dubbed the “Good Guarantee,” means students with families in such sectors will only have to pay half of Capital’s tuition.

A TA Union Contract, 2 Years Later

September 05, 2018

Brandeis University’s (MA) graduate student workers reached a tentative contract with their administration, almost two years to the day after the National Labor Relations Board said graduate students at private institutions have the right to unionize.  The Brandeis agreement, if approved by union members later this month, will be the first contract for graduate students across the country whose union bids relied on that 2016 NLRB decision.

In Race for Students, Colleges Offer to Match Tuition at Rival Schools

In Race for Students, Colleges Offer to Match Tuition at Rival Schools

September 04, 2018

Escalating the heated battle for students, some private colleges are offering to match public in-state tuition.  Oglethorpe University near Atlanta will match the tuition of any state flagship university for high-achieving students, and Robert Morris University in Pittsburgh said last week it will charge Pennsylvania residents the same price as local public universities, plus a $3,000 scholarship to boot.

How Colleges Help Students Find Purpose in Their Work

How Colleges Help Students Find Purpose in Their Work

September 04, 2018

In a conference room overlooking Alumni Walk, Peter Bysshe picks up a marker, faces a whiteboard, and quickly sketches a grid — 10 boxes across, 10 down. "Now," he instructs the students seated around the center table, "give me words."  After five minutes of free associating, the students have a chart with 100 words that capture their impressions of L.L. Bean, one of several businesses they’ve visited this term as part of an intensive, five-week class that is teaching them how to build, manage, and shift a company’s image. An hour later, a dozen students in another classroom listen to Timothy Kelleher and Sean Cahill describe how they built the nation’s largest "organically grown" Planet Fitness franchise with the help of private funds. Those could be scenes from any business school, but this is Bates, a liberal-arts college, and the men presenting on this Friday in June aren’t professors but alumni.

 Daniela Gaona didn't know how she would pay to fullfil her dream of pursuing a master’s degree in mental health counseling until just a few days before classes started this week. That’s when Johns Hopkins University (MD) stepped in with emergency aid after a summer of lobbying by the 22-year-old Gaona.
