Hi Laurie,

I manage the education and hosting services at WPMU DEV (and our sister
service, CampusPress). I agree, the Pro Sites plugin may not be designed
for this need. I'd be happy to chat about that. I know that for many of our
customers, we are able to leverage attributes in something like Active
Directory or Shibboleth to limit site creation to certain groups, like just
faculty/staff. Perhaps that might be useful for you?
