Abelard to Apple: The Fate of American Colleges and Universities
The vast majority of American college students attend two thousand or so private and public institutions that might be described as the Middle. Rich DeMillo has a warning for these colleges and universities in the Middle: If you do not change, you are heading for irrelevance and marginalization. In Abelard to Apple, DeMillo argues that these institutions, clinging precariously to a centuries-old model of higher education, are ignoring the forces at work in today’s world. In the age of iTunes, there are new rules for higher education.
