The Business Model and Today’s Economy – A Warning to Universities and Investors

As spring is upon us, this is the time deans and higher education vice presidents across the land embark on their yearly budget exercise. Given the rosy economic scenario painted by improving wages, job reports and corporate profits, it would not be out-of-place to start dreaming of expanding their own little circles and propose larger budgets and increased hiring for their respective units – what Warren Buffett has dubbed the institutional imperative. My warning: beware!

As an academician, I have often heard high-ranking officials espouse how public universities should be run using a business model. My own university president is a strong proponent of the idea. The problem is that universities are saddled with challenges most companies don’t have to deal with. For example, let us suppose that demand for your company’s product goes down. To keep your company viable and responsible to stockholders you will cut down on production. Fewer sales means less personnel will be needed leading to workforce reductions. Despite lower revenue, the bottom line is kept steady by lowering expenses for materials and personnel.

Let’s look at what happens at a university. Let’s suppose demand for your product, classes, goes down – i.e., fewer students are enrolled. The cost of materials to run a class is minimal as compared to personnel and physical plant costs. You can’t shut down buildings so your only recourse is personnel reductions. Here is a problem corporations don’t have. They never have a case where the few remaining clients demand that the company put out as much product as before the reduction in demand. But if you have a class of 40 reduced to 30 or even 20 students the university cannot cancel it. These students registered for the class well in advance, before the semester even began. Their schedules and even graduation are predicated on it. If the class does not make, students will be in an uproar and in this day and age they have no trouble letting the world know – online. As the news become viral, the university will gain a bad reputation. It will affect future enrollment. Any whisper of lower enrollment sends chills down high administrator’s backs.

Here is another difference between corporations and higher education providers. Corporation hires are more fungible. If you let go someone all you need is several weeks’ notice. Not so for academia. You may let go of staff personnel that way but instructors are on an academic year contract. University administrators may decide not to renew a contract for a non-tenured instructor after the academic year but they cannot terminate during. That means hiring and budget decisions have to be made well in advance.

Back in 2007 I was in the middle of this dilemma. I was the founder and Chair of the Idaho State University Budget Committee. Our mandate, as I saw it, was to keep abreast of economic developments so we could best advise administrators of “hiccups” leading to reductions in state allocations to higher education. Once …

UK University Rankings – A Comparison

Which is the best ranked university in the UK? How are universities performing? There is no official government ranking of universities in the UK. However, there are some newspaper rankings published every year by the Times Newspaper, The Telegraph,The BBC’s Student Guide, The Independent University Guide and The Guardian.

Oxford is ranked as the Number 1 University by The Independent and Guardian, outperformed Cambridge in 2008. Oxford tops the Guardian league table, followed by Cambridge, London School of Economics, Warwick, St Andrews, Imperial, University College London, the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS) and Edinburgh.

There are several university guides in the UK which rank all universities in order of merit, but based on different criteria. Guardian focuses on the quality of teaching and what students themselves think. The Independent Good University Guide (now The Complete University Guide) uses nine measures of quality – student satisfaction, research assessment, entry standards, student/staff ratio, library/computing spend, facilities spend, degree classifications, graduate prospects, and completion rates. All universities are assessed in these nine quality factors. It is a highly regarded university guide; students often make a reference to the ranking tables when choosing a university. There are 59 subject tables which rank the universities within individual subjects.

However, a university which ranked highly in The Times may appear in a poor position in other university guides such as the Sunday Times or the Guardian. In 2008, there are some big differences in ranking positions among the two famous university guides (Guardian and The Independent), such as the follows:

(1) University of Dundee is ranked 17 in the Guardian (A Top 20 University), but it is ranked 52 in The Independent, even not in the Top 50!

(2) University of Bristol is ranked 31 in the Guardian (outside Top30), but it is highly ranked in The Independent, at 16.

(3) Anglia Ruskin University is ranked 109 in The Independent, but it is in a higher position of 71, in the Guardian league table.

(4) Thames Valley University is ranked 85 in the Guardian, and 110 in The Independent.

(5) University of Durham is doing extremely well in The Independent, ranked at 6th position, but it is ranked 16 in the Guardian (outside Top 15).

(6) University of Abertay Dundee is ranked 68 in The Independent, but it is outside Top 100 in the Guardian, at 105.

Which ranking guide is the best? It really depends on a number of factors.…

College Basketball History Part 1

The term “college basketball” is typically referring to the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA). The first recorded college ball game was in Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania between Geneva College and the New Brighton YMCA on April 8, 1893, and the first intercollegiate game was two years later. Here, Minnesota State School of Agriculture (now the University of Minnesota) defeated Hamlin College with a score of 9-3. A year later, the first game with the current 5-player format was played in Iowa City, Iowa. The first televised college game was between Pittsburgh and Fordham in 1940, taking place in Madison Square Garden. Pittsburgh came out on top.

At the beginning of the 20th century, there were enough college teams to begin forming basketball leagues, and the NCAA was founded in Chicago in 1906. Over 5,500 fans were witness to the first NCAA Championship tournament, which took place in Evanston, Illinois, in 1939 (Oregon emerged victorious over Ohio State in the final game with a score of 46-33).

Another tournament, the National Invitation Tournament, was also very important at the time, and was believed to be just as high quality as the NCAA. However, by the 1950’s, the NCAA was dominant, and the NIT became a showcase for teams that were not as talented and couldn’t make the NCAA tournament. It is still played today in Madison Square Garden.…

Studies Readiness and Career Choice Mentorship

As a practitioner of holistic human capital development, I believe on being occupied with the study readiness and career choice topic early in any person's life. However, it is surprising that people only engage on this topic at the high school level of the learners. It is as if readiness for studies and career choice becomes only relevant during the transition from high school to the college and university. It is for this reason that we find many learners not ready to choose the line of study that is informed by the ultimate carers that they would like to follow.

My objective is to encourage all the parents, guardians and scholars to engage in this topic early in their schooling journey. Secondly, I would like to highlight the themes that should form the engagement. It is more complex than it looks, and always an emotional topic to handle. Scholars become victims of many fault lines not previously obvious to them.

Timing in handling this transitional topic is a challenge to all the schools. They do not always have insights and necessary information to base their consideration on. Access to information is cost for some, and in most cases their school volunteer guidance officers are not exposed to the latest trends. As a result they wake up very late and end up taking studies and career directions that are not well researched.

The schools and parents are encouraged to invest in mentorship program to support the scholars in their studies and career choices. However, such programs alone are not sufficient. The schools must work together with the various mentors in conceptualizing and designing educational tours to the institutions of higher learning (universities and colleges), attending studies and career fairs, exhibitions, etc.

The interaction between the schools and the industry should be effected in early years of the scholars development. The schools must employ skilled counselors, guidance teachers, and industry liaison officers. Companies must be encouraged to adopt schools under their Corporate Social Responsibility programs and see the scholars through to the universities. Such schools could become scholarship recipients of these companies. Ultimately they would graduate to become their employees. However, the idea here is not for the companies to support schools for their own benefit. This is done for the benefit of the society with the hope that the economy will benefit from an educated people.

We can not disregard the commercialization of the student information activities, like privately organized careers fairs and exhibitions. They occupy the space left by the schools and education authorities. As a result such initiatives are perceived to be for the children of the middle class and the wealthy parents. There is a need for collaboration between private and public organizers. The main objective must be to assist the scholars in their studies and career readiness irrespective of their status in the society.

As the 4th industrial revolution becomes a reality, we need to be mindful of the role that technology is already playing in delivering …

Education and the Complete Individual

Education is something that many have said much about. Most of these are complex or vague. Consider the Greek philosopher Aristotle's saying that education is ' an ornament in prosperity ' and ' a refugee in adversity '. There have been a great many attempts to explain this description, but none have quite succeeded in satisfying my curiosity. Alternately, this is what the English essayist Joseph Addison has to say on education: What sculpture is to a block of marble, education is to a human soul. This too, has a great many explanations and illustrations. But does it really tell us what education is? Does it tell us why we need education? Not really, since the concept of the soul is, till date, a shadowy area. So how can we begin to comprehend what everyone claims is essential to life nowdays? To put it simply, education is a process of training our mind so that we can apply it in a field of our choice: which is why we have education not as a single seamless entity, but as a whole made up of various divisions: music education, scientific and technological education, art education, even teacher education!

Education can be considered similar to picking and eating a fruit. Picking a particular fruit on the tree is akin to choosing a field to get an education of. When we bite into it, we get our first taste of the subject. As we chew on the bitten proportion, we begin to understand its various aspects – the tastes, textures, intricacies and complexes of it – and when we are ready to move on to the next portion, we swallow what we have assimilated so far so that it can be used for further application. The tree we get the fruit from is the entire body of past thinkers' teachings and the voice that tells us which fruit to pick is the interpreter of that knowledge: the teacher.

Through the lifelong course of education (no, it's not like school or college which ends after a fixed period of time), we get to know about things that always were, still are and always will be around us, waiting to be recognized and acknowledged . Light plays a central role in education – both literally and metaphorically – for visual inputs are the best learnt and without light – of the sun or electrical – we would be missing out on a whole world of knowledge. In fact, this is where phrases like 'light of knowledge', 'throw light on the matter', 'kept in the dark' and so on came from.

You might be thinking, how can we narrow the infinite field of knowledge to select what we will need or want to know? This is where the part on 'training the mind' comes in. The mind, as psychology tells us, is the center of cognitive institutions which enables consciousness, thinking, perception and judgment. It is the kitchen for the information we acquire, where we can …

University of Oregon Ducks Mascot Explained

Located in Eugene, Oregon the University of Oregon has a rather unique mascot in the Ducks nickname that is affiliated with all of the athletic programs associated with the school. Quaking fans and a seemingly harmless mascot that bears a striking resemblance to the Disney character Donald Duck are not exactly the types of things that are typically thought of as striking fear into the hearts of conference opponents.

The story behind the origin of the University of Oregon mascot begins in Eugene, Oregon. Located in the coastal county of Lane County the city of Eugene has a metropolitan population that tops 340,000 people. During the era when the school was founded in 1876 a nickname even more unusual than the Ducks was chosen. That strange nickname was the "Webfoots." The curious term given to the first sports team to play for the University of Oregon is said to have been coined by an area sports editor by the name of LH Gregory. Legend states that the inexplicable nickname is in some way tied to early Willamette Valley (Oregon) settlers who ancestors were part of the fishing trade across the country in the state of Massachusetts. Seemingly for lack of a better alternative the nickname stuck for roughly sixty years until a sports reporter in a new generation instituted a shift.

The concept of a Duck mascot was first implemented in the 1930s when a tiny white duck that went by the name Puddles started to make appearances at big games. Puddles the duck was an instant hit with students and faculty alike. The popularity of cartoons in the 1940s ushered in the first drawings of a lovable cartoon image of the University of Oregon mascot.

Student depictions of the adored mascot started showing up in student publications with an increasing likeness to the already established Disney animated creature widely known as Donald Duck. Fortunately for the school and fans alike a sensible agreement to continue using the likeness of Donald Duck was quickly reached. Whereas in the more litigious twenty-first century Disney and the University of Oregon might clash over legal considerations it just so happened that the Oregon athletic director at the time named Leo Harris had a connection with a Disney cartoonist that arranged for Mr. Bush. Harris to sit down with Walt Disney himself and work out an agreement that was sealed with an informal handshake. This infamous handshake would come to a point of contention when Disney Corporation lawyers broached the subject in the 1970s. Occasionally a formal agreement was drafted and signed preventing the continued use of the likeness of Donald Duck in accordance with the wishes of the late Mr. Walt Disney.

The modern day version of the University of Oregon Duck is no longer referred to as Puddles. Today the most common hide names for the revised mascot that sports an Oregon green and yellow outfit are Donald Duck, the Fighting Duck, and the simplistic moniker The Duck. …

The Mathematical Colors of Human Survival Technology

The Romantic Era of the Arts from the mid 18th Century to the mid 19th Century was inspired by the ideals of a lost ethical ancient science. Its leaders were concerned that humans had deviated into being governed by a lifeless mechanical culture. The philosopher of science Wolfgang von Goethe considered that Isaac Newton had betrayed the science of color to reduce all to a black and white mechanical reality. Goethe's linguistic color perception theories were revived in 2012 as a book of the year 'Through the Language Glass', written by the linguist-physicist Guy Deutscher. However, few people are aware that in fact, Isaac Newton actually refuted the idea that the mechanical theory of the universe was complete and that like the Romanticists, he had derived this opinion from the same lost ethical science.

The work of other poets and artists during the Romantic Era that had attacked Newton for having a science derived from a clockwork description of a mechanical universe has now been linked to important DNA discoveries and the issue has become a cruel human survival one. It is an outstanding achievement that in 2017 the World Fund for Arts in Russia has taken upon itself to rejuvenate the Science-Art ethos belonging to the Romantic Era of yesteryear.

Newton's mathematical genius supported a more profound description of the universe than that of a lifeless mechanical cosmos. Science, economics and religion approved of the mechanistic model, the basis from which a false quantum mechanics was derived by teaching that Newton's world-view was mechanical. Both political and commercial science, together with religious persuasion gained control of our unbalanced modern science. Along with the scientists, religious institutions were in denial that the living process evolved to infinity, evoking religious laws to enforce their opinions. The lost ancient ethical science could not come into its own until the time for knowledge about living human DNA arrived. It is now possible for quantum mechanics to be made complete by researching its entanglement with the science of quantum biology.

Arthur C Clark's television documentary 'The Colors of Infinity' was about Benoit Mandelbrot's discovery of infinite fractal mathematics. Within the documentary a comment was made that the evolution of civilization was not included in the purpose of an infinite universe. The reason for that is because pursuing science is governed by the 'Universal Heat Death Law', which states that all the heat of the universe is going to radiate away into cold space and eventually all life in the universe must become extinct.

History's most famous mathematician, Georg Cantor was also history's most despised mathematician for daring to challenge the global scientific death cult. His declaration that a dysfunctional fear of infinity had infected the minds of modern age scientists created an international scientific and religious furore. World famous mathematicians, rigidly objecting to such a pronouncing, joined together to savagely condemn his concept that the life force process could be evolving toward infinity. Influential religious leaders were enragated that Cantor's mathematical conviction overturned their …
