UNC Mention in “Leaner, Meaner State U."

An article in Inside Higher Ed asserts that public university employees can expect two things from their universities over the next few years: new programs with an emphasis on increasing tuition revenues, and a whole host of “operational efficiency” initiatives designed to get more bang for each buck. The article reviews the presentations at the annual meeting of the National Association of College and University Business Officers (NACUBO) and how large public research universities can change their underlying financial models to accommodate a "new normal” of decreased state appropriations and increased emphasis on tuition revenue, while dealing with increased political pressure to constrain tuition prices. The article quotes Joe Templeton from Carolina Counts.
