Demographics Are Challenging Colleges

Demographics Are Challenging Colleges

The Huffington Post has an interesting article about how demographic change is affecting college enrollment. “In fact, more than two thirds of private colleges and over 50% of public colleges failed to meet their enrollment or net tuition revenue targets for 2016,” according to statistics quoted in the article. This situation is a great example of how macro changes within the country can dramatically impact entire industries. In this case, many colleges will either need to resize, go out of business, or come up with new strategies to address the shrinking amount of high school students available who can attend a college.
