2022 Prediction #3 FOR-PROFITS THREATEN THE MISSION OF THE FIELD

By engaging in providing education and content, for-profit multinational corporations now pose a major threat to the mission of the field, and to higher education as a whole. Julie Mustache

No one's against for-profits - - I get on airplanes, subscribe to Netflix, even buy food from for-profits. 

But only nonprofits can serve all of society.  Even, or especially, if you are a rich business owner, you need skilled workers to be profitable. You need highways.  You need clean air.  And someday even you for-profit guy will want social security and medicare.

More on this top story of the year for the field later.  Photo: My nonprofiteering co-author trying to pass as a for-profit guy.
