Right Sizing the University


Higher ed institutions continue to face headwinds due to enrollment declines, so limited resources must be deployed intentionally. The solution is to “right size” the different components of the institution to adapt to a constantly changing landscape. This takes the shape of things such as converting computer labs into esports arenas, integrating chatbots, and the metaverse. The result is that increasingly hybrid students are digitally engaged while optimizing the expertise of faculty and staff.
