  1. It seems to me that the scan strays into looking for solutions along with identifying trends. In particular, I get a strong sense that the report envisions some form of distance education in response to demographic trends. I think that is dangerous to the extent that it prevents us from looking at other options, e.g. attracting students from a wider geographic area with the promise of a residential, transformative experience. I don’t know which approach is ultimately feasible, or if a blended approach or something entirely different emerges. The Scan, however, should not inadvertently steer the reader in a predetermined direction.
