WW President Levine on the Purdue-Kaplan Deal
In April, Purdue University announced its acquisition of Kaplan University, a for-profit university that includes 15 campuses and learning centers, 32,000 students, and some 3,000 employees. Woodrow Wilson Foundation President Arthur Levine applauds this move, praising the potential to expand the reach of higher education in the global, digital age:
With the acquisition of Kaplan, Purdue is straddling the industrial and digital worlds and thereby updating the mission of the land-grant college as a transitional university that leads higher education into the future.
