Demographic changes have colleges bracing for uncertain future - Jarrett Carter, Education Brief

The Chronicle of Higher Education examines the changing demographics of states and the impact on college campuses. Pennsylvania colleges, for instance, are expected to lose more than 18,000 students over the next 15 years, according to some estimates. Some campuses, like Susquehanna University, are looking to recruit from neighboring states from more affluent households to replace the dwindling pool of in-state students from towns decimated by the loss of industries like coal. Slippery Rock University experienced a 3% increase in enrollment by diversifying its academic offerings to include more STEM-related professional programs. http://www.educationdive.com/news/demographic-changes-have-colleges-bracing-for-uncertain-future/431769/
