The College of the Future lays out a bold plan to help America’s private, non-profit colleges innovate and flourish within a challenging environment. These colleges have long been a haven for students, an anchor for communities, and a cultural oasis in small towns and cities across America, but rising costs and falling enrollments have plunged many of these venerable institutions into debt. In the past decade, dozens have closed their doors for good, a devastating occurrence for students, faculty, staff, alumni, and the communities surrounding the campuses. Even institutions that are thriving are faced with headwinds that necessitate strategic evolution.

Jeffrey Docking, President of Adrian College, and Kevin Harrington, CEO of Rize Education, make a compelling cause for a collaborative model that allows colleges to quickly add enrollment-boosting majors, minors, certificates, and courses with significantly less cost and risk. This new model also provides a path for colleges to significantly reduce the price of tuition over the next several years.

Beginning with a chance encounter with a Google employee, Docking takes the reader from the early days of course-sharing among a few colleges to the development of a transformational partnership with Rize Education and a consortium of innovative colleges determined to change the future. By sharing courses and majors using new technology, Docking and Harrington show how colleges can become more competitive and dramatically boost enrollment, providing a path to financial sustainability for colleges and lower tuition for students. The College of the Future provides real-world examples and evidence-based results alongside a cogent analysis of how and why this model is already working for many colleges.
