Selected InterEd Publications
Limited Offer: Out of Print Classic on For-profit Higher Education
In 1996, InterEd's president, Robert W. Tucker, and Apollo Group/University of Phoenix's Chairman, John G. Sperling, finally published a document that, for five years, had been written and revised as an internal vision and planning document for the University of Phoenix. The book, For-Profit Higher Education: Developing a World-Class Workforce was published by Rutgers University Press in 1996. It sold out quickly. A few used and hold-back copies still circulate on Amazon and elsewhere. While the demographic specifics contained in FPHE are dated, the vision and many of the planning specifics provide seminal insight into what it takes to develop a successful adult-centered and professional university in today's environment. Of course, the book is the landmark publication marking the visible portion of the transformation of higher education.
InterEd has acquired a few copies of these books that we are pleased to pass along to our clients and prospective clients. If you want copies for your senior staff, all you need to do is send us an e-mail and we'll get them out to you. Since our business has nothing to do with product sales or small invoicing, we are offering this as a courtesy. The price is $100 for six copies (shipping and handling included). If you desire, each book personally signed by Dr. Tucker (please specify your request; otherwise books will not be signed). Our business office is not equipped to process retail sales. You will receive an invoice when you receive the books. We ask that you not request fewer than five copies. Send an e-mail soon. If you don't like the message in FPHE, we find these make pretty good doorstops (in quantities of five).
