A Campus of Innovation


Fast Company’s annual list of the world’s 50 Most Innovative Companies included many of the usual suspects: Apple, Facebook and Google all made the list. So did the NFL, we well as a company setting up green spaces in urban neighborhoods and at number twelve, Southern New Hampshire University. SNHU is a private, not-for-profit university that depends on tuition, and locatedin a state whose population of public high-school graduates is projected to decline for years. Despite those challenges, SNHU is generating revenue and educating people who can’t afford or don’t qualify for traditional university educations. Paul LeBlanc is President of Southern New Hampshire University in Manchester and is here to tell us what SNHU has done to land on the list with such big players.
