AGB Institutional Strategies’ sole business is to facilitate introspection, creativity, and, most of all, leadership to aid in overcoming institutional challenges. We work with all types of institutions to ensure sustainable solutions, and our work is informed and inspired by our experiences in boardrooms for nearly 100 years.
Regional Public Institution
This institution had experienced a decline in state appropriations and responded with appropriate cost adjustments in operating expenses. While cost reductions addressed short term issues, they were not enough to meet the critical need for new revenue.
Small Private Institution
Cutting costs at this small private institution did little to stop the decline in net revenue. The situation was critical. An immediate turnaround was needed to prevent an ultimate financial collapse.
Declining state funding and decreasing revenue prompted this state system to reassess its overall business model. A series of cost cutting initiatives provided some short-term relief for its diverse and independent campuses. But those measures did little to promote new revenue growth and sustainability.
Small Rural College
Declining enrollment for five straight years set the stage for this assignment. Our consultant immediately went to work developing innovative strategies that would help stem the enrollment decline and stabilize the operating environment of this small rural institution.
