Lower cost, high retention, and reduced time to graduate are all key selling points for these degrees.

This book describes innovative pedagogy in fused learning classrooms that builds relationships and promotes retention and student satisfaction. Featuring a wide range of topics such as community college, accreditation, and international education, this book is ideal for university presidents, provosts, rectors, chancellors, international educators, administrators, academicians, policymakers, researchers, and students.
