How is Air University Like Arizona State University?

At Arizona State, school President Michael Crowe thinks the university (including his university) needs to

…worry less about who gets in and more about what comes out

…reconnect higher education to the real world

… [push] scholars to think like public servants and work like entrepreneurs

How to do such things?  Innovation and experimentation.

…one of [ASU’s] four campuses is a polytechnic that emphasizes practical experience and direct entry into the workforce

Online teaching platforms leverage the faculty’s reach

Accelerated curricula shorten the time required for a degree

And how does Air University (AU) compare to ASU?  It depends on who you ask.  For example, don’t consider these Best Defense links (or comments) as any sort of an endorsement but rather as a point of (sometimes uncomfortable) discussion to ponder potential AU improvements vis a vis ASU.
