College admissions scandal: Lincoln’s land-grant colleges are still helping students grow

Land-grant colleges offer values

Excellent op-ed in USA Today this morning by Gordon Gee regarding the admissions scandal roiling “elitist” campuses. He says “let’s end the rat-race admissions culture” while noting that land-grant institutions offer purpose over prestige. Right on target! You can be elite without being elitist.
