Harvard Envy is a chapter excerpt from Change.edu coming out October 18, 2011. Exploring the limitations of the exclusive, tradition-bound world of higher education, innovator Andrew S. Rosen, chairman and CEO of Kaplan, Inc., delivers a vision for making a world-class college experience available to students of all backgrounds. Little is known about John Harvard, who bequeathed his books and Ap779 to a fledgling college on the Charles River in the 1630s, but the institution that bears his name has become the gold standard for universities worldwide.
