“It’s really important to have a sense of urgency to actually get this done,” says Scott Sturgess, a senior associate at consulting firm KPMG.
“We are not there yet.
We are not even halfway to being ready for the new wave of students coming into our schools.”
Sturgess says the trend of schools opening new campuses with big, new buildings will likely continue.
“It’s not just about a new school, it’s a new generation of students who are coming in.
And this is where it’s going to be a little bit different,” he says.
The Big Ten will likely have its first new campus in 2019, and will expand into a new campus to open in 2021.
Sturgesses says the expansion is important for the conference because it can help it recruit and retain the best students.
But Sturgesses cautions that new campuses also mean new rules for colleges.
A new college needs to comply with the Big Ten’s new College Access and Transparency (CAUT) rule.
The rule states that a school that doesn’t comply with CAUT is required to report to the conference on its enrollment and financial aid practices, and to disclose information about its students’ progress.

This year’s College Board Scholarship is $1.4 million in scholarships for first-year students.
This is the second year the award has been offered.

In addition to the new college, the College Board has begun to expand into the next step in the growth of colleges: The Big Ten Business Institute, which is part of the American Council on Education, is set to open its first campus in 2021, with a new building expected to open later this year.
While many of the Big 12s top programs remain at the Big 10 level, Sturges says the league is likely to be moving into a few new divisions as it expands its footprint.
Among those are the Big South, which was founded in 1999, and the West Coast Conference, which came into existence in 2004.
All told, the Big 11 has about 1,000 schools.
There are about 700 full-time students at those schools, according to the College and University Services Association, which represents colleges and universities.
However, those numbers may not be as good as some of the other schools in the Big East, which has about 500 full- and part-time undergraduates.
For example, the number of full- time students at Georgetown University is about 400, and about 50 percent of those students are part-timers, according the college.
Those numbers also may not translate to the rest of the college and university world, which might have even lower enrollment numbers.
With a small number of students, the conference may be able to tap into the best and brightest students, but those students may not have access to the best resources.
CollegeBoard.org, a partnership of the College of Arts and Sciences and the Association of American Universities, provides a tool that allows students to see their school’s ranking on the U.S. News Best Colleges list.
At least three of the four Big 12 schools, Baylor, TCU and Kansas, rank in the top 10 of that list, and some of them have higher graduation rates than the rest.
On the other hand, at the other end of the spectrum, the four schools in that bottom 10 are all at the bottom of the rankings, according an analysis by the College Institute.
That doesn’t necessarily mean that the Big Eight schools are better than the others.
“The Big East is going to continue to grow,” says Mark Schatz, the director of the Center for College Affordability and Productivity at Georgetown.
Schatz points to a number of factors that might have contributed to the rankings of the schools in his own group.
He points to the availability of college-level education as one of the most significant factors.
If students in the best schools are having access to a college degree, they can get a college education, and that means more money.
Plus, some of these schools have excellent public universities.
That means they can offer scholarships to their students, and if students choose to take one of those scholarships, that money is going towards a higher education, Schatz says.
The Big 12 could potentially compete with other conferences in that regard.
According to Schatz and other experts, the two-year degree programs offered at some schools will be more expensive than at others.
And there’s some evidence that students from more affluent families may be more likely to take out loans to attend the school.
Another factor that might be playing a role is the growth in technology and digital commerce, which Schatz believes could help drive more people to college.
