Why do we have money for this challenge and not for other things?

The funds being used for the PSU Flexible Degrees RFP are restricted funds.  They are generated from the fee students pay for online courses. Those fees are used in two ways: 1) for direct student support while students are taking their online course and 2) for investment in future course development.  While the past investments have been used to support existing online courses and to seed the development of new online programs, we are now investing in programs that speak to the “next generation” of how technology can be used to radically rethink our curriculum as well as modes of delivery.
