Guerilla U was founded in order to provide the much-needed, and hard-to-find information about higher education in the United States. Don’t expect to get all the details in the publications that offer rankings and other superficial information. They won’t tell you the percentage of faculty that is hired fifteen weeks at a time, or how many of their professors have no offices and can’t be found on campus. They won’t tell you that the average graduation rate is now six years and not four. They won’t tell you that the “majors” many students choose are woefully outdated, and taught in a way that will not provide professional guidance or readiness. They won’t tell you the dangerous habits of the financial aid departments, or the woeful inadequacies of their advising practices.
What are parents and college-age students to do? Guerilla U offers the answers. Our Founder, Debra Leigh Scott, offers workshops, presentations, private consultations and strategic counseling to help students decide if and where to access what institutions of higher education have to offer. An educator and educational activist for over 15 years, Debra has extensive experience that she can bring to bear for the benefit of current and future students in searching for the strategies and tactics essential in the successful navigation through our educational systems and programs, and into a bright and successful future.
