About the Collaborative Many universities have developed four-year degree maps to help students plan their course schedules and chart a path to a degree. Unfortunately, those maps rarely guide students beyond picking courses. Innovative institutions have gone beyond the academic degree map with experiential major maps, comprehensive plans that align course requirements with co-curricular and […]

Our briefing outlines how academic leaders can enhance quality by reallocating resources from lower impact activities to higher impact, mission-aligned priorities.
Instructional costs, primarily faculty compensation and benefits, are the largest single budget line item for nearly every university—and they are on the rise. For most institutions, these costs are largely fixed, making resource flexibility a significant challenge in an era of declining per-student funding and tuition revenue.
Allocating instructional resources appropriately requires negotiating difficult trade-offs through a shared governance process that engages faculty and academic leaders.
While most academic leaders think of advising, academics, or student affairs when thinking about student success, the administrative infrastructure of a campus has an equally key role to play. Many students will struggle even more if they must overcome a multitude of administrative and financial hurdles to progress toward graduation. The right policies, processes, and financial supports form the foundation for a broader student success strategy.
This infographic offers an industry-wide perspective on the academic affairs concerns across institutions, even for topics that will not be a focus in the upcoming EAB research cycle.
