Though Stockton University sits in the middle of southern New Jersey’s woodsy Pine Barrens, its campus is equipped with the most modern IT and AV technologies. Over 8,600 students attend the institution and have access to more than 180 state-of-the-art classrooms. 

For institutions looking to grow and expand their student population, a primary challenge is ensuring that administrative services keep pace with the flood of new students. When the Texas A&M University (TAMU) College of Engineering committed to doubling enrollment to 25,000 students by the year 2025, they also committed a concentrated effort to reengineer key business processes for operational efficiency, and to provide the highest quality of services to students.

A small proportion of higher education institutions in the U.S. command a majority of international student enrollment. While 108 doctorate-granting universities enroll just 11 percent of all students in the country, they enroll some 44 percent of all international students. What explains this trajectory of so many international students toward a small number of institutions?

How is content changing in terms of diversity and affordability on campuses?
“Content” used to be more narrow in scope, and referred pretty much exclusively to print textbooks. Today content can mean a wide variety of products, from traditional texts to interactive software. Content can come in a print or digital form, and be sold new or used. There are also new, open-source models that can provide access to everyone in a class at a low cost or for free. The products themselves are changing, in addition to the types of content.

An estimated 11 percent of undergraduate students on campuses today have a disability. Ensuring that these students have equal access to technology is a complex challenge, requiring a coordinated effort across campus departments. Universities must maintain compliance with the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 AA, which is considered the standard for measuring web accessibility.

Student success and improving retention rates have become high priorities in higher education. Given significant breadth in definitions, context, programming, funding, and other key factors, what is most important to consider when it comes to student success and retention efforts?

As the financial pressure in higher education continues to mount, and revenues continue to be challenged, all higher ed institutions are being forced to look internally to find effective ways to save. The safety net once provided by state funds, appropriations, gifts, high returns and tuition increases have been ripped away. The reality is, institutions must learn to sustain themselves. 

Samford University—a private, faith-based institution in Birmingham, Alabama—offers more than 30 health-related degrees through its College of Health Sciences and expects to add 5,000 students there by 2020.

Greencastle, Indiana is home to a unique blend of industrial and commercial businesses as well as a top ranking private liberal arts college – DePauw University.
