I couldn't agree more with Mervelle's comment regarding Walden University. I am both a student at Walden and a practitioner at a local community college, where I have taught in a full-time capacity for eleven years. It is often difficult to overcome the "this is the way we have always done it" attitude in an attempt to deliver a more progressive curriculum that better prepares students for the more diverse and ever-changing world in which we live.

Globalization is a really big issue in these times. Universities everywhere need to be able to compete, especially in the U.S. Branding should not be an issue. We should be striving towards providing quality adult eucation for all of the diverse learners that will enable them to become prodcutive citizens of this world. As a Walden University student, I have found that they are wel ahead of their game when it comes to providing this type of service. Studenst are immersed in other cultures, countries, and global markets without really trying to be becasue they work toward a common goal: trying to promote social change through the work that they are doing in their respective degree programs and fields.

It is fascinating to read about universities taking their reach globally. I doubt that any of the super-prestigious universities in the U.S. will do this, as they will view it as diluting their brand.
