Rick Beyer, Managing Principal, AGB Institutional Strategies

In today's changing higher education environment, it is important to realize that no institution can cut its way to prosperity. That said, strategic approaches to cost containment and realignment are vital pieces of an overall plan to ensure fiscal sustainability at your institution.  

It should be noted, however, that cost cutting is only a temporary fix, while achieving sustainable revenue growth is a natural way to lower costs over the short and long-term.  This often involves making decisions on the margins--for example, eliminating low-enrolled classes or adjusting course rotations.
