From Bloomberg news article anent "Liberty University", Jerry Falwell's legacy:

Nonprofit private and state schools alike are discovering what for-profit colleges such as Apollo Group Inc. (APOL)'s University of Phoenix and Washington Post Co. (WPO)'s Kaplan University figured out more than a decade ago. Faced with a swelling number of overleveraged student borrowers, cuts in public subsidies and paltry endowment investment returns, they are embracing the Internet as a viable alternative to (sic) educating students.
