Construction Management Program Builds Financial Development from the Ground up
Nobe, Michael D.; Shuler, Scott; Grosse, Larry
Tech Directions, v67 n1 p21-24 Aug 2007
Recent economic and legislative changes have hit higher education hard and threaten the financial viability of many educational programs nationwide. With state support dwindling to less than 10 percent in some cases, institutions across the nation face a financial crisis. Many strategies have been explored and implemented, from campaigns to attract large donations to changing the status of the university to a free enterprise environment. The question the authors address in this article is: "What can educators and administrators do at the department level to remain solvent?" This article introduces a financial development strategic framework and specific strategies that the authors see producing great results for the construction management department of Colorado State University. They explore the tactics that their construction management department now uses to remain solvent and maintain quality. The model they outline may also work for other programs that have a large and supportive industry base. (Contains 1 table.)
