What demographic decline & competition mean for your institution


Schedule a cross-cabinet facilitated discussion to learn how demographic decline will affect your institution and how your institution can adjust to these coming challenges.

Higher education leaders are by now all-too-familiar with higher education’s challenging outlook: the number of college-going students is projected to decrease over the next decade due to a sharp drop in fertility following the Great Recession. Projections developed by Dr. Nathan Grawe, and by WICHE show how these trends will play out nationally, and regionally.

However, while it is easy to see how these projections will play out at a high-level, discerning how these trends will impact your institution can be challenging. That’s where the Enrollment Scenario Explorer can help. Our model projects how the demographic decline will affect your institution and shows how different strategies could help you adjust for the coming decade.
