Create Self-Funding Mechanisms for Strategic Initiatives

Higher education’s ability to fund and sustain strategic projects is often undercut by a culture where too many initiatives are proposed, regardless of alignment with the institutional mission. In addition, current budgeting practices force decision makers to focus on one-time project costs and de-emphasize long-term commitment planning needed for sustainable success.
