The Social Life of College Information

This paper argues that one of the reasons that college completion rates are not as good as they should be is that the information flow in the current business models for college choice and college persistence is not designed to help student make good decisions about where to go and how to succeed along the way.  Borrowing from the literature on service innovation and marketing, the paper suggest ways to improve the usefulness and relevance of available information to promote better educational outcomes. student_empowerment
