Too often higher education officials equate successful enrollment management with determining the appropriate financial-aid package, assuming the student matriculates. However, there are competing theories as to why a student may be attracted to a particular college. Could it be the "buzz"?

A new Mobius Model of Global Instruction is introduced that emphasizes a multicultural perspective
