Scott Pulsipher, president of Western Governors U.: The inspector general’s report looked only at how the university’s teaching model matched up with regulations, and “made no effort to evaluate the quality.” An audit last year by an independent arm of the U.S. Education Department questioned whether the teaching model of Western Governors University, built around competency-based learning, ran afoul of a federal law. Western Governors begged to differ. Now it has data, in the form of a new survey by Gallup Inc., to make the case that its mentor-based model produces graduates who are more likely to be “thriving” in work and life than are graduates of other colleges.
