our institution’s governing board has presented three challenges to your institution, the last of which is to meet the first two challenges within the existing budget.
Use this Discussion to brainstorm, propose, and evaluate possible methods your institution could use to increase the number of graduates and improve student learning without requiring new financial resources. In effect, you will consider ways in which the institution can be more efficient and productive. Consider your readings on the escalating costs of college and what might be done to keep these under control. What general strategies might you suggest? What strategies can you think of that might work to achieve one or both of the goals, but which you would not recommend, and why?
