What a Reinvented College Looks Like: 4 Alternative Higher-Ed Models

It has become increasingly popular to say that higher education needs to go back to the drawing board—that the best way to improve college is to start new campuses from scratch or radically reinvent old ones.But it’s one thing to muse about a new kind of college over drinks with colleagues, and another to break ground on a digital-age campus quad.
