Transforming America's Universities to Compete in the "New Normal"
Bruininks, Robert H.; Keeney, Brianne; Thorp, Jim
Innovative Higher Education, v35 n2 p113-125 Apr 2010
The challenges faced today by U.S. colleges and universities have been accelerated by the current economic downturn, but they are not the result of it. Consequently, we should not expect a sudden reversal of fortune when the economy rebounds. Changing demographics and spending priorities coupled with increasing competition and demands for accountability mean that universities face a "new normal" in which they must embrace a clear vision of the future, including access and opportunity for all learners and a culture of entrepreneurship and service.
