Incubating Innovation at Southern New Hampshire University - Michael Hart, Campus Technology

Many are familiar with the Southern New Hampshire University story — how Paul LeBlanc, in the depths of the recession, transformed a financially troubled but otherwise unremarkable brick-and-mortar New England institution into one of the fastest growing not-for-profit online educators in the world. However, LeBlanc, SNHU's president, was not willing to stop there. He started an innovation lab called Pathways that eventually morphed into College for America, which provides low-cost, high-quality education for adults and became the first competency-based program to grant associate's degrees eligible for federal financial aid in 2012. Fast-forward to late 2015, and the ever-restless LeBlanc was ready for the next phase in Southern New Hampshire's growth and development — which would be what? Good question, and one he has hired Michelle Weise to help answer. https://campustechnology.com/articles/2016/04/27/incubating-innovation-at-southern-new-hampshire-u.aspx
