Abstract:

Higher education continues to face one of the most challenging environments in history. Colleges and universities are under intense pressure to restructure and reform. Critics believe that the enterprise is inefficient and wasteful. Costs are rising and many families are finding it difficult to afford college. Institutions find that they must become strategically focused in response to the myriad of challenges. They must define a vision, set goals, balance current and future needs, and monitor institutional performance. As a policy maker, you need a clear and timely picture of current and future trends in order to make informed and effective decisions that will improve your institution's performance. More that just facts and figures, Strategic Indicators explains (in detailed yet plain language) the significance of each indicator, provides a concise and straightforward interpretation of the results, and presents a set of questions to help you assess and improve your institution.
