'Just-In-Time' Learning Can Revitalize Higher Ed

June 05, 2018

Trenton Shortchanging Independent and Nonprofit Colleges

This is especially true when it comes to education.  The proper funding of education has been debated for years, from pre-k to vo-tech to graduate school. When it comes to higher education, one sector has continuously been overlooked: the state’s independent and nonprofit colleges and universities.

Miller, president of Virginia Wesleyan University, writes:  On the Monday mornings after the pomp and circumstance, we return to market reality — convincing the next class and the one after that to enroll and partake of all that higher education can offer.
