"Newsworthy" piece on Richard Pattenaude, president of the University of Souther
"Newsworthy" piece on Richard Pattenaude, president of the University of Southern Maine, mentioning that in February, Pattenaude was named to the National Commission on Accountability in Higher Education, a new body that will study the use of so-called accountability systems within higher education institutions. While calling for more business-like measuring and benchmarking of higher education, Pattenaude knows that a university cannot be run like a business. He expects the commission to develop benchmarks and measurements tuned to reveal the operating effectiveness of educational institutions, such as measuring student retention and graduation rates.
