Survival through Change: A Case Study of a Privately Supported Urban University's Plan to Fight the Budget Squeeze.
Academy for Educational Development, Inc., New York, NY.
This is the case study of a real institution whose newly elected president took some decisive and difficult steps to avert the financial ruin of his institution. A panel was appointed to study the institution's condition and to report on: the options for change that existed; the financial and educational steps that could and should be taken during the next 5 years; and how the action must be taken. The positive actions advocated by the panel fell into 4 interrelated categories: (1) finances, which included: conserving assets, stepping up recruitment of students, more active fund raising, and improving space utilization; (2) the academic program, which included: creating a distinctive urban oriented curriculum, improving faculty productivity; and faculty involvement in trying to solve the problems; (3) management, which included administrative reorganization, and improved planning and leadership; and (4) community involvement, which included an expanded public service role.
