The Story Of Rickford
The thought for Rickford University was conceived in 1971 when a meeting was held between the industry leaders and leading educators. During the meeting, the President Mr. Charles Bachmen had the anticipation to understand that distant learning technologies can take over the squeezing issues of the time, like, absence of academic opportunities that are confronted by restricted public funds for academic services.
To make this happen, the members counted on the best minds in the Education sector and Center for Higher Education Management Systems (CHEMS) to help them design the concept of new university. The main focus revolved around the following five elements:
- Awareness about educational and employment needs
- Development of a technological infrastructure
- Attention towards competency-based education
- Increased access
