Summary

The Virtual U Project is a simulation product created to help improve the management of the nation's university systems. Virtual U simulates running a university or college and assists management in allocating resources within the university. It is a powerful and user-friendly software tool that models the attitudes and behaviors of an academic community. The tool is driven by a powerful simulation engine that draws on an extensive compilation of data concerning the United States higher education system. Players determine policies for resource allocation, faculty hiring, and enrollment management; and consider other decisions that college and university administrators face. Virtual U is the beginning of a new genre of interactive tools for educational systems. (Author/AEF)
