A Survival Kit for Invisible Colleges Or: What to do Until Federal Aid Arrives.
This case study of Aquinas College presents both the assets and the liabilities of a small college faced with the problem of survival. Emphasis is placed on the means by which Aquinas College dealt with the factors determining its future. Chapters cover the odds on the invisible colleges, the ordeal of change, new directions, an experiment that did not work - an engineering program based on the concept of educational brokerage, some experiments that did work, and the economics of community education.
