And Simmons also chose to work with a for-profit partner -- in this case, the online program management firm 2U -- a decision that at some campuses has proven controversial. Dana Grossman Leeman, associate professor of practice, became the director of the online social work program in April The social work program has grown from 54 students in July to more than 1, students today, she said. The college now employs nearly adjuncts -- a mix of faculty members at other institutions, Ph. The growth Simmons has seen is bringing changes to the college, many of them positive but some potentially problematic, Leeman said.
For example, the online and on-ground programs are managed separately, she said, which works well today but in the future could lead to a greater sense of division. Ultimately, Leeman said, the issue is a logistical one. The online and on-ground programs use different platforms, which will need to be addressed if the college wants to integrate the programs. Bringing students in the programs together could also shed light on how people in different locations practice social work.
Leeman said the online program has attracted a more diverse group of students, with larger shares of students with military backgrounds and in rural locations. Simmons is giving a substantial portion of its tuition revenue to 2U. It is not uncommon for online program management firms to collect half or more of the tuition revenue generated from programs they help launch -- especially in the first few years after launch, when the companies are looking to recoup start-up costs, which they often front and did in Simmons's case.
Students in 2U-powered programs pay the same for tuition as those who study on campus. The company reported stronger than expected quarterly results Thursday. Some colleges have relied on online program management firms to get their programs off the ground, then terminated the contracts once they feel comfortable handling the operations on their own.
