It does not have to look like problematic signals for colleges and universities. In the last week, Mills College became the last small private university to say that it will close, Covid-19 continued to threaten the end of the spring semester in person in institutions, such as Duke and Syracuse universities, and several other four years and two. The schools of years announced significant dismissals or discontinued programs.

All of which makes the results of the University Survey and the University Presidents of ED Superior ED, published today, more than a bit amazing, as they find the country campus. The leaders are more optimistic, since they emerge from one year dominated by Covid-19 of what they were before the blow of the pandemic.

About eight in 10 university and college presidents say they trust that their institution will be financially stable in the next. 10 years, and more than one quarter agree. Presidents of public doctoral universities and four-year private institutions agree on an even greater number, but even three quarters of the two-year college presidents in agreement. In comparison, only 57 percent of the university presidents agreed with that statement in a survey carried out in early 2020, before the blow of the pandemic.

Campus leaders also have a very positive vision of the impact that is likely to have in their institutions, confidence that seems to be well placed insofar as the federal government sends tens of billions of millions of Dollars in recovery aid in your own way.

Not everything is pink in however, the eyes of the presidents, and other findings in the survey suggest that for all rhetoric about the need for their campuses to change, presidents are thinking quite traditionally on how Address your problems. Consider:

  • When asked what actions can take to respond to the financial restrictions they face, the presidents prioritize the steps to increase revenues (cultivate new donor bases, lobby for more government support) about the Actions that would be reduced expenses or rethink the way the campus operates (reducing the portfolio of the academic program or the physical footprint of its campus, reconsidering tenure policies).
  • Presidents continue to believe that racial relationships on their own campuses are significantly better than in higher education.
