Multigenerational campuses are growing. How Lasell College in Massachusetts and Purchase College in New York are opening up retirement communities to lure lifelong learners and provide fixed revenue streams.
Broadview Senior Living at Purchase College is expected to open in 2021. For the first four years, retirement community revenue will be $2 million annually through a ground lease agreement with the state of New York. Every five years thereafter, rent is to increase by 10 percent.
Providers were asked: How well are colleges using data to measure faculty performance, and what related areas need the most improvements?
“Colleges will typically show the faculty how their scores compare to others at the school, usually those in the same department. But they rarely ask the instructors how they plan to improve any low scores they've earned or coach them how to do so. Closing this feedback loop will improve the students' experience.”
Measuring faculty effectiveness has never been a perfect science—and it has always held potential for contention among instructors and administrators.
College tuition has been growing at roughly double the rate of inflation for decades. At last, the trend of annual tuition hikes appears to be cresting.
