Report Projects Impact of Possible New Recession on Public Institutions - Rick Seltzer, Inside Higher Ed

If another recession hits, many public colleges and universities are likely to increase tuition to raise revenue as they are squeezed by drops in state and local funding, according to a new report from New America. The think tank released a paper Wednesday predicting how a theoretical future recession would affect higher education finances. It examined historical data on state appropriations, local appropriations, tuition revenue and enrollment levels from the past 15 years. New America then modeled each state’s likely outcomes in the event of recessions of differing severity. https://www.insidehighered.com/quicktakes/2016/12/01/report-projects-impact-possible-new-recession-public-institutions
