California offers $50 million carrot for college innovation - LISA LEFF, Associated Press

Gov. Jerry Brown has made a habit of criticizing California's public colleges and universities for what he sees as a failure to adapt to the 21st century. Now he is putting the state's money where his mouth is. The governor has pledged $50 million to reward campuses with creative and cost-effective approaches to getting more students to earn degrees in less time. A seven-member committee chaired by Brown's finance director is scheduled to name the winners of the California Awards for Innovation in Higher Education later this month.
