Allowing them into the WCC would be a terrible mistake.

    Spurious.

    The U.S. Department of Education last week told Grand Canyon University that it had determined that the university remains a for-profit institution. The decision surprised many in higher education and could be relevant to other for-profits that are seeking to change their tax status, as well as to colleges that outsource the administration of online programs to outside companies.

    Grand Canyon last year announced that it had received approval from a state regulatory agency in Arizona and its regional accreditor to convert to a nonprofit university. The university's publicly traded owner, Grand Canyon Education, sold the campus and academic operations for $870 million to the new, nonprofit Grand Canyon University. Under a 15-year contract, Grand Canyon Education provides a wide range of outsourced support services to the university in exchange for 60 percent of its tuition and revenue.

    The Christian university enrolls roughly 105,000 students, more than 20,000 at its campus in Phoenix.
    The department on Tuesday released its 18-page letter to Grand Canyon on the decision. It also released a written statement, noting that the call was based on the structure of the relationship between the university and Grand Canyon Education.
    So if they go with a 30 year note and 40% of the money, it should be fine.

    We could actually do with more schools being profitable rather than suckling on the taxpayer's teat.
    It's not funny.

    Ahh, but that’s the point. Indirectly through federal aid to its students GCU does as much suckling as any more reputable school. Larding both students as well as taxpayers like yourself with millions in debt.

    Yes. That's the point. They do as much suckling as any more reputable school.

    I agree about the larding of taxpayers with much of the larding being the absurd rise in University funding via taxpayers, at the expense of actual educational programs. Cut the university funding in half and put that money into VoTech schools. Graduates would be contributing members of society from day one, not saddled with ever increasing debt from student loans. Fund the universities with tuition or have in state tuition be free, and fund via tax payer. Doing both funding via taxpayer AND tuition sure isn't working.

    Would Matt Santangelo have any interest in coaching at that program? I probably wouldn’t hire him as the head coach as his first coaching job, but he might be a strong assistant coach with strong Portland ties for recruiting.

    He has good management skills, not sure he has done much coaching over the years. He would have to put some time in building his player development and scouting/recruiting skills. I would have to think he could have put in time doing that at GU where he could stay in Spokane if that is what he wanted to do.

    It’s Wichita. Landry Shamet couldn’t bail fast enough.
