on importing higher ed

the National (my new favorite news source) ran an op-ed today on the new Saadiyat Island in Abu Dhabi, where the Louvre and NYU will both have a satellite campuses (campi?).

It's an interesting idea that you can import these higher-ed "brands" in order to establish your own system. Is the intent to actually replace them eventually with Emirati names? You have to wonder who ends up getting the credit for things like this ... I can be fairly certain that NYU will take full credit for the success of its satellite campus.
