Reinvention by Necessity
When Leblanc arrived at SNHU in
2003, the institution was in no shape
to throw its weight around. It was a
second- and perhaps a third-tier
institution. Founded 70 years earlier
as a proprietary storefront secretarial
school in Manchester, the university
had evolved into a middling traditional
institution of a few thousand students.
Six years into LeBlanc's administration,
amid the Great Recession, enrollment
was down and budget pressures were
becoming increasingly uncomfortable.
Forced into action, LeBlanc and
SNHU's board made a decision to
build up the university's anemic online
presence, which had existed since
1996, and aggressively enter the mar-
ket for non-traditional students.
"When you have opportunity and
urgency, that's a powerful combina-
tion," LeBlanc said.
The growth of the last four years has
been remarkable. In 2012, Fast Com-
pany named SNHU to its list of the
World's 50 Most Innovative Compa-
nies, recognizing it "for relentlessly
reinventing higher education online
and off." The university was number
12 on the list, ahead of LinkedIn.
Higher education leaders hopeful of
establishing an online beachhead
have sought the advice of LeBlanc.
Eduventures predicts that in the next
12 to 24 months, as many as 500
institutions of higher education will
enter the online education space or
attempt to expand existing programs.
SNHU's success has been due, in
part, to good timing. In the decade or so
before the economy crashed, the for-
profit education sector had proven that
there is a viable market for online edu-
cation. More recently, the buzz about
