The National University System was established in 2001 to meet the emerging challenges and demands of education in the 21st century. The System is uniquely aligned to connect a diverse population of students to a network of innovative educational programs that are relevant to their lives, careers, and the marketplace and are delivered in a format that respects competing life priorities.
Estimates for total welfare spending by government are four times the amount than of giving cash to all Americans currently living below to raise them above the poverty line. But replacing government’s myriad income redistribution by spending even more is reckless. It does not address resulting inevitable runaway inflation, or welfare still needed once income is spent. We would be better off with a welfare system promoting personal responsibility, reducing associated humiliations, and eliminating administrative waste.
