Evolving Economic Models for Higher Ed
For many decades, colleges and universities counted on certain economic models to sustain them. For public institutions, that meant steady appropriations from the state and modest tuition revenue. For private institutions (leaving aside the fortunate few with large endowments), that meant a steady stream of tuition-paying students, producing enough revenue to operate the college and subsidize those students unable to pay. For public and private research universities, that meant ever-increasing budgets for federal agencies that fund scientific studies.
These days, those models are challenged as never before, with states walking away from support for public higher education, and students fickle in their choices and insistent in many cases on deep discounts off of sticker price at private colleges. And federal research funds are relatively flat and facing possible cuts.
This webinar will explore how these shifts are playing out at different colleges and universities. We will also examine strategies – some succeeding and others on which the jury is still out – to respond to these changes.
Join Inside Higher Ed editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman for a lively discussion on these topics Tuesday, July 11 at 11am in the Library Fishbowl.
