Scott Kinney to publish articles on LinkedIn

April 24, 2014

I am excited to announce that Scott Kinney, president of Capella University, is now writing full-length articles on innovation in higher education for LinkedIn. His first article was published last week and is focused on the relationship between competency-based education and the federal student financial aid system, what it needs to work, and why you should care.

In the article, Scott highlights a recent hearing of the U.S. House Committee on Education and the Workforce titled “Keeping College Within Reach: Meeting the Needs of Contemporary Students.” Kevin Gilligan, CEO of Capella Education Company, was invited to testify on the behalf of Capella at the hearing. Capella did a great job at advocating for the need to support innovation through a restricting of our federal financial aid rules in order for competency-based learning to benefit students who depend on federal financial aid.

Here is a link to the article. I encourage you to follow Scott on LinkedIn, as Scott will have compelling input on meaningful areas of higher education.
