Summary With increased public concern over accountability, educational institutions are being asked the defend their expenses. In addition, the heady economic boom of the late 90's has given way to an economic slowdown and possible recession, making colleges and universities take hard looks at their spending practices. This book offers practical advice on how to contain costs in an academic environment, highlighting how economic models from business and industry can be translated for use in educational institutions. The authors use case studies to add context and detailed analysis to show how campuses can make needed modifications in their budgets while staying true to their mission and goals.
