Here are three stories from the Chronicle of Higher Education’s Daily New Blog that I couldn’t resist posting:
First, a history professor at the University of Montana placed ads in his class for a local Burrito restaurant, in return for a $250 donation to the department.
The University of Cambridge is asking British soap operas to incorporate the University into their story lines in order to encourage more working class students to apply.
Meanwhile, other British Universities are offering students cash to enroll in unpopular programs.
An instructor at Bishop’s State Community College in Alabama was fired for enrolling in his own classes in order to augment his existing associates degree.
Finally, Bates Technical College, in Tacoma, Washington will compensate 16 students a total of half a million dollars for bad teaching that they claim left them unprepared for their careers.
