Growing questions about the business model for higher education in the US | International Ed & the American College Game | Scoop.it

ICEF Monitor takes a closer look at what higher education institutions outside of the most prestigious set – known as the "middle-tier"– are doing, and what they might be doing, to meet these challenges.
