Tuition Revenue Plummeting on College Campuses

    Simple demographics. Births for the Baby Boom echo generation peaked in 1991. Those people are now 22 and generally out of college. Since 2009 colleges have had a declining pool of potential matriculants (18 yo) to attract to their own particular institutions. Now that the peak year has graduated these colleges on aggregate should not expect enrollment to begin increasing until about 2035.

    One would hope that by that point their liberal pig piffle would long-since have been swept away by cultural, social, and political transformation.

  • I recommend a simple three-part plan to recover from decades of financial mismanagement: cut senior administrative salaries by 75%, cut senior faculty salaries by 50%, zero-out NCAA sports, and then rebalance the institutional spreadsheet.
