The Great Recession has brought new attention to the spending side of college finance. The speaker will challenge the conventional wisdom that costs cannot be reduced without sacrificing quality or access through examples of ways that institutions are addressing the "cost disease" while protecting investments in ways that increase learning and degree attainment.


Assumption that gov't's attainment goals are either too high or unaffordable. (Or impossible educationally) #E10_FS03 Let's challenge that!

In tight times, higher ed slashes budgets but DOESN'T restructure the spending model, says Jane Wellman #EDUCAUSE10 #E10_FS03

Wellman emphasizing need to increase degree attainment to meet production goals. #E10_FS03 "We are underperforming" #educause10

In an economic recession higher ed is one of the first things to be cut, yet institutions never restructure the spending model. #E10_FS03
