That's the key take-home message of an exhaustive report just released by The Chronicle of Higher Education. The study costs $75 so I can't link it here, but you'll find the highlights below: The classic college experience won't be the norm. Colleges stuck in the middle will feel pressure to change the most. The elite private universities and state flagship institutions will remain popular and so will community colleges, which appeal to the budget conscious. It's the colleges in the middle, which don't have well-known brand names, that will have to reinvent themselves to survive. These public … [Read more...] about What College Will Look Like in 2020
