Higher education innovation is a moving target. Colleges and universities find themselves in a rapidly shifting environment due to changes in student demographics, developments in technology, and challenges to the higher education business model. Many college presidents and other academic leaders realize the need to innovate to meet these challenges, but few have truly succeeded in creating sustainable cultures that foster new mindsets and ideas on their campuses.

Colleges and universities should seek to find ways to extend their larger purpose and mission through new ideas and experimentation.
