More Students + Budget Cuts = Tough Choices
Raths, David
Campus Technology, v24 n10 p14, 16, 18 Jun 2011
Across the nation, student enrollment is exploding, while budgets are being slashed to the bone. A March 2010 report by the League for Innovation and the Campus Computing Project says it all: "Still Doing More With Less." In a survey of 128 community college campus presidents and district chancellors for the report, 94 percent of respondents said enrollment in their districts had increased, while 52 percent reported operating budget cuts. And those cuts are increasingly being felt in IT departments. Central IT services have been affected by budget cuts in 46.2 percent of community colleges, up from 38 percent in 2009, according to the 2010 Campus Computing Survey. While their first impulse might be to lock themselves in a room and weep, community college CIOs across the country are having to find innovative ways to deal with the double whammy of increasing enrollment and state budget cuts. In this article, four CIOs at two-year institutions share strategies for weathering the storm.
