University Park, Pa. – The luster was off Michigan’s defense, ranked No. 1 nationally for much of the season, after allowing 42 points and 506 yards to second-ranked Penn State.

Leading the way for higher ed
Gov. Rick Snyder challenged public university presidents and trustees at the third annual State Universities Summit “to envision and embrace transformational change; to lead not adapt; to collaborate not compete; and to be proactive not reactive.” Snyder encouraged public higher education to drive economic development, innovation and entrepreneurism. His vision for higher education revitalizing Michigan’s economic and cultural future entails, seizing opportunities inherent within four macro-trends: declining numbers of high school graduates that force public universities to expand student populations beyond the state and beyond the traditional 18-24 age demographic; advanced placement courses, early/middle college, and dual enrollment that enable high school students to enter college with a year or more of academic credit toward a degree; an economy that demands more post-secondary credentials; not just degrees but certification programs; technologies expanding so rapidly workers must commit to lifelong learning in order to master them and cope with the magnitude of societal change   Read More ...
