The Other Higher Ed Bubble (Full Report) | Academic Impressions

The Other Higher Ed Bubble (Full Report) | Academic Impressions | Colleges & Universities | Scoop.it

Amid recent discussion of whether higher education is the next big financial “bubble,” It’s my view that what isn’t being talked about is a bubble of another type—a “denial” bubble. In this report, I'll offer a new diagnosis of the challenges facing higher ed leadership, and a call to action for college and university leaders.

Over all, 18 percent of private universities and 15 percent of public schools in the survey projected a decline in net tuition revenue for fiscal 2013. A much larger share, one-third, said net tuition revenue would decline or grow by less than 2 percent.

“Such weak revenue growth often means a college cannot afford salary increases or new program investments unless it cuts spending on staff and existing programs,” the Moody’s report said. By comparison, in fiscal 2008, only 11 percent of private schools and 9 percent of public schools did not increase tuition revenue by 2 percent or more.

All posts in here as of 2013 are also being archived in an open Evernote folder. Some of you may find that useful. The folder can be used without Evernote, or inside Evernote.

 

SCUP Links is the inbox through which the society shares its daily and weekly environmental scanning. Most posts here are also simultaneously posted in SCUP's:

Twitter stream;LinkedIn group;Facebook page;Tumblr; and Planning for Higher Ed Mojo's activity stream. 

 

Weekly, we assemble 10 of what we think are the most interesting and relevant-to-SCUPers of our scanning results and publish them in SCUP's email newsletter, The SCUP Scan. 

 

On a quarterly basis, the society's daily scanning informs its editorial team's solicitation and selection of content for SCUP's journal, Planning for Higher Education.

 

Each issue of Planning has a broad theme and an accompanying cMOOC in SCUP's virtual community space, the Planning for Higher Ed Mojo.

 

We have completed out first MOOC, the "Campus-Space Mojo" and have moved on to the next quarterly theme in the journal and Mojo, "Change-Disruption."

 

With each forthcoming Mojo, as participation continues to increase, the Mojo itself is becoming a regular source of additional knowledge content in the form of substantive blog posts and forum discussions, as well as sharing of images, videos, and documents.

 

What we scan.

 

We scan SCUP's own content production, including digital resources and face to face events.We scan similar content production for many other higher education associations.We scan higher education specific industry periodicals of interest to planners, as well as national news media and publications of higher education interest groups.We also scan the social media networks listed above.

  1. Who needs massive new classroom buildings and dorms if the future of education will be mostly digital?
  2. On the other hand, how do you avoid under-building?
  3. How do you plan for the future if you don’t know what it looks like?
  4. What are the most important factors are in deciding how many and what type of physical facilities a campus really needs and can reasonably expect to need in the decades to come?
  5. What must college and university leaders consider when updating a campus Master Plan?
  6. How to get to facilities (including research spaces) being more flexible in accommodating a multitude of different classroom applications (e.g., labs, lectures, etc.)?
  7. How to factor in the future likelihood of widespread hybrid/online-only classes on space?
  8. What are some examples of campus’ facilities plans that have taken at least some of the above factors into account?
