Problems Facing Higher Education

Higher education needs to change. Students are facing a number of challenges with today’s universities that are leaving them in tough situations.

Many universities today:
  • Are too expensive
  • Take too long (4-6 years)
  • Focus too much on theory at the expense of hands-on training
  • Do not lead to measurable outcomes
  • Do not train character in the individual

Hallmark University is setting out to change higher education by demonstrating a better way.

National Averages are higher than 4 years

Though most programs are projected to finish in 4 years for full-time students, most students do not stick to this timeline. In fact, the average amount of time most students finish 4-year degrees is 58.8 months, nearly 5 years!
