Enrollment Management Consultant John W. Dysart will be participating in a panel discussion entitled "Colleges and Universities Tackle Today's Challenging Economic Climate" at the upcoming RealShare Student Housing Conference to be held at The Four Seasons at Las Colinas in Irving, Texas on April 14-15, 2009.
Recent changes in the economy have reduced endowment levels at most colleges and universities. The majority of states are working to reduce support levels for public colleges and many public schools are responding by reducing enrollments. The credit crunch have made it more difficult for schools to fund capital projects while tightening credit has reduced the availability of alternative loans for students and families. This session will focus on the challenges facing colleges and universities and discuss enrollment projections while identifying opportunities for growth.
