Shorelight Education, a new player in the growing business of developing pathway programs for international students, sought and won an injunction to prevent the release of its contract with the University of Kansas to the Lawrence Journal-World, the newspaper reported. Shorelight, which has teamed with Kansas to recruit international students and operate a first-year experience program combining academic and English as a second language coursework, argued that release of the contract -- requested by the newspaper under open records law -- would compromise proprietary information that could help other corporations replicate its business model. The newspaper reported that while administrators hope that the program will boost international student enrollment, some faculty are concerned about issues of academic oversight.
