Diploma milling

Posted By on Tue, Mar 24, 2009 at 10:46 AM

Inside Higher Education has a report on a growing hubbub about a private outfit's deal to work in concert with public universities to market on-line master's degrees in education.

Faculty members nationwide are raising heck about the peril of cookie cutter courses and other concerns.

Arkansas State University is one of the campuses that has hooked up with the controversial enterprise and faculty members there have also been raising questions, particularly the administration's seeming decision to enter the deal without faculty input. The article has an extensive rundown of the situation at ASU. "Byzantine," a word used by one faculty member, seems an appropriate description.
