not yet rated|write a review
Simpson identifies strategies for cost containment or cost reduction in higher education and discusses these strategies in light of their effect on the quality of the learning experience, the future of the academic profession, and the implications for society. This differs from most of the current literature on cost, which tends only to describe it, explain factors underlying its increase, and how it may be financed. Particular concern is given to options that could be followed over the long term without impairing the quality of educational opportunities, the academic profession, or society in general. The emphasis is thus on the objectives to be served, rather than the resolution of financial difficulties on the revenue side or on crisis management. Some of the strategies discussed are applicable at particular levels of government; some relate to interinstitutional arrangements; and some are options for individual institutions. This book is recommended for university trustees and administrators, educational administration courses, and government policymakers and concerned faculty.

Editorial Reviews

?Cost Containment is a summative work about public and institutional financial and academic policy with which every official connected with higher education should be familiar....In sum, this is a valuable and unique book, a reference tool for the current and next generation of academic and financial analysts and higher education policy makers. Although the book is devoid of the mathematical arcana of economics, it is densely packed with ideas and information to the point that it is much like an advanced but introductary textbook....It should serve higher education well into the next century.?-Journal of Higher Education
