What Does It Profit a College to Add More Students? The Relationship between Enrollment Growth and Financial Strength
Meyer, Albert J.; Sikkink, David H.
Christian Higher Education, v3 n2 p97-113 Apr 2004

Contrary to the conventional wisdom among administrators, it was found that institutions characterized by greater enrollment growth in a given year were not characterized by more positive subsequent changes in overall financial strength.
