US universities need to scale back to be sustainable

Scale back to create sustainable institutions

By William Patrick Leonard – in University World News.

The era of increased enrolments and ever-rising tuition fees needs to come to an end and institutions should scale back their ambitions to ensure they are sustainable.

For decades America’s public regional universities enjoyed both the relative security of state funding and the benefits of governmental financial aid to their students. Federal and state governments provided aid to qualifying students at the same time that these same institutions steadily increased their tuition fees.
