SAVING THE FUTURE OF U.S. HIGHER EDUCATION

Higher education institutions face unprecedented peril from a perfect storm of economic and demographic challenges. Declining enrollments, drastically reduced state and federal government funding, and excessive growth of support and administration costs have left many universities in a cash-strapped financial conundrum. In addition, student loan debt exceeds U.S. credit card debt and serious questions are being raised about the ROI (cost to value) of a college degree.

To address these critical issues, over 30 diverse and prestigious thought leaders contribute innovative ideas to help re-imagine, re-engineer, and re-invent the business of higher education – with a focus on the pragmatic, the achievable. Some of their suggestions are in the guise of blasphemy; others are cloaked in common sense. All will provoke.

Cross-indexed against five large foci important within higher education—Leadership; Academic and Faculty Affairs; Student Services and Affairs; Financial and Administrative; and, Data—views touch on solutions that are tried, innovative, disruptive, or simple and sane.
