Description

This session will discuss the importance of looking at the spending side of student success – and being more purposeful about spending in ways that promote student success. The bad fiscal climate is not likely to change significantly in the next decade; all institutions are being challenged to do more with less. The academic culture has historically equated resources with quality, when research on spending and effectiveness tell us that the way that money is spent is more important than the absolute level of resources. The session will explore ways to look at spending patterns, and to develop strategies for generating cost savings to reinvest in increased student success. We will conclude with suggestions of approaches to consider for institutions just getting started with this type of work
