At the end of the millennium in which the idea of the university has blossomed, population growth is outpacing the world’s capacity to give people access to universities. A sizable new university would now be needed every week merely to sustain current participation rates in higher education....Sir John S. Daniel, Vice Chancellor of The Open University; 6; p. 1

2. provide quality STUDENT SUPPORT SERVICES.
