Eastern Michigan University entered into an agreement with Academic Partnerships last November to market "online only" degree programs. Since then, the contract and its possible ramifications on the students and teaching staff at EMU have become the source of a large amount of scrutiny. The issues raised by faculty and lecturers' unions on campus (and at the center of an ongoing arbitration) have recently garnered national attention as they embark on an ad campaign geared towards a "pause" in the agreement. WEMU will offer ongoing coverage of the issue and revealed, this morning, that we are working on a comprehensive "special report" on the matter.
