States and Higher Ed: Growing Economic Strains Challenge Public Colleges and Universities
January 12, 2016 - 4:53pm

The state role is crucial to public higher education in the United States. And public higher education is crucial to college attainment nationwide, because most students attend public colleges and universities. Yet the financial model for public higher education remains uncertain. States made deep cuts following the start of the economic downturn in 2008. And while there has been some recovery in many states, it has been modest. For many in public higher education, it is clear that states have no intention of resuming their historic role in financing higher education.

In this webinar our editors discuss some of the latest data on state support for higher education, and give an up close look at the way the state shift is creating challenges. The impact varies by institution type, but the compilation includes examinations of the issue with regard to flagship research universities, regional universities, public historically black universities, community colleges and other institutions.
