While in Tennessee, Baxter worked to establish several collaborative organizations in order to better serve private colleges. The first was the Coalition for College Cost Savings, a national group purchasing organization providing a range of contracts for small- to medium-sized private colleges in order to help reduce expenditures and improve efficiency.  

The second organization was a statewide public and private college coalition to foster healthy and safe campuses with a focus on alcohol and other drug abuse prevention.

According to DegreeRegistry.org , a general MBA can be obtained for as little as $6k and as high as $120k. If students would do a little research, they would find that it is not nearly as expensive to get a college degree
