A Shell Game by Any Other Name: The Economics and Rationale behind Tuition Discounting
A new white paper by P. Jesse Rine, Ph.D.


The jCENTER for Innovative Higher Education partners with institutions, agencies, foundations, and individuals to develop innovative solutions to systemic challenges in higher education. Our design-based work is a collaboration between researchers and practitioners to produce sustainable change. jCENTER works to design solutions for higher education's most complex challenges including access, affordability, and sustainability.

At the heart of what we do.

jCENTER is driven by the belief that the current system of higher education in the United States is not sustainable. Changes are necessary to disrupt current assumptions, engage interdisciplinary stakeholders, and inspire new generations of leaders to create high quality, accessible, and affordable higher education.
