Access to Success: Accommodating Student Enrollment Demand for Colorado Higher Education.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This report examines the consequences of increased student demand for higher education in Colorado, in light of constrained resources for state-supported higher education, and offers strategies to address this demand. The report describes enrollment trends at Colorado colleges and universities, workforce training needs, and trends in state funding of higher education in Colorado. It argues that the state must solve this enrollment/funding dilemma in order to avoid enrollment limits, excessive tuition increases, erosion of educational quality, or damage to graduate education. It then discusses criteria for evaluating strategies that address the increasing demand for higher education. The report recommends that the state implement the following changes at the undergraduate level: (1) institutional productivity enhancements; (2) systemwide productivity measures; (3) flexible personnel, purchasing, contracting, and administrative procedures; (4) revenue enhancement measures; and (5) measures to increase institutional capacity.
