Dirks On Alternative Funding For Higher Ed, more...A Global Degree From A Global U. In Every Global Pot?

Dirks abroad :



Nicholas Dirks: public universities need not choose between access and excellence
https://www.timeshighereducation.com/news/nicholas-dirks-public-universities-need-not-choose-between-access-and-excellence

I believe we can avoid this existential choice. Instead it is vital for us to develop new funding mechanisms that will entail [our creating] innovative partnerships between public universities and the private sector,” he said.

and

“What truly and consistently distinguishes the great publics from the great privates has to do with the make-up of the student body and more specifically the commitment and ability of public universities to provide an excellent education to the broadest possible [section] of the public.”


on that  see both this:

Our student-athletes can excel on two fronts Chancellor's Corner

http://www.dailycal.org/2015/10/20/our-student-athletes-can-excel-on-two-fronts/

When Academic Progress Rate figures — NCAA measures that track student-athletes’ progress toward graduation — are released in the spring, we anticipate that our football and basketball teams, which in 2013 were the subject of scrutiny over poor grades and low graduation rates, will notch their best scores in six years. Our football team’s new recruits are already surpassing intentionally strict academic admissions requirements put in place last year by our Academic Senate. This past year, the collective GPA of our men’s basketball team showed the greatest improvement among all Cal sports teams. And it is gratifying to see that today, we have more football players returning to campus to finish their degrees (often after several years in the NFL) than we’ve had in the last decade.
