Taylor, Alexander; Brown, Rachel; Parks, Rachel; Parrish, Jesse; Hayes, Casey – College and University, 2018
To stand out in a crowded marketplace, every organization must find or create a competitive edge. Companies without a unique advantage get lost in a tide of rivals.

Parrish, Jesse; Parks, Rodney – College and University, 2018
Registrar's offices used to be--and in some cases still are--physical manifestations of organizational charts: upper management resides in one cloistered area, occasionally behind a locked door, connected to the rest of the staff by multiple degrees of separation.
