Addressing Rising Institutional Costs

Rising costs, financial uncertainties, and external pressures are all current threats to the financial viability of many institutions. Facing mandates from boards, legislators, or system offices, many leaders seek answers to the essential cost containment question: How can I make reductions successfully without undermining the important activities of the institution?

Striving for Financial Resiliency

The magnitude of financial pressures facing colleges and universities today require all faculty, staff, and other stakeholders to actively participate in cost management, efficiency and effectiveness efforts, and resource prioritization activities. However, many units remain set in siloed, ineffective processes, while the vast majority of faculty and staff see financial management as a problem for others on campus to handle.
