Social, historical and economic forces are challenging the viability of traditional models of higher education; postsecondary institutions must examine alternative strategies and approaches in order to effectively adapt to the demands of a knowledge economy. Proprietary models provide insight to assist colleges and universities striving to address changes necessary to achieve (and sustain) success in meeting the growing needs of lifelong learners via: (1) opening access to a broader community of students; and (2) cutting costs through increased efficiency in structure and operation. Implementation of sound educational practices aligned with efficient processes and cost-effective structures is essential for colleges and universities striving to meet the needs of an increasing number of students.
