The wealthy privates or the state flagships don’t need my advice, but I have some common-sense advice for all colleges and universities that are seeing enrollment and revenue decline. It is time to change the way you recruit students and it’s time you focused on your differentiator. Don’t have a differentiator? You’d better create one. Soon.

Liberal arts help veterans thrive? Come on! I’ve seen far too many apologists – or should I say defenders – for the liberal arts recently. Let’s take a different point of view. First let’s look at the ages of these students. They’re not kids looking for the thrill of the “college experience”; they’re adults who have been through some serious maturing processes. Put into another college, for example a school teaching STEM subjects, and veterans would thrive there. They are serious about outcomes and generally not looking for a mate or a fraternity lifestyle. It’s all about the veterans, not the liberal arts.
