2022 Survey of College and University Business Officers
Scanning the landscape, college and university financial leaders would seem to have plenty to worry about.

Student enrollments are declining, and tuition revenues along with them. Inflation is high. The federal government has turned off the tap on the recovery aid that helped many institutions weather the COVID-19 pandemic and related recession. Even colleges and universities with big endowments—those best positioned to weather financial storms—have to be nervous watching the stock market officially enter bear market territory by dropping more than 20% so far in 2022.

A different picture emerges, though, in the newly-released results of Inside Higher Ed’s 2022 Survey of College and University Business Officers.

While the business officers surveyed acknowledge many of the pressures facing their institutions and express slightly less optimism than they did in last year’s survey, they are on balance upbeat about their institutions’ financial stability and largely disinclined to see the need for dramatic changes in how they operate.

Inside Higher Ed will host a free webcast on Wednesday, August 10, at 2PM ET, featuring Editors Scott Jaschik and Doug Lederman, to go deeper into the key findings and insights from the survey to shed light on how business officers have viewed challenges facing higher education in the U.S. this year. ​

Can't attend the webcast? You should still register -- all registrants will receive a recording of the webcast and a copy of the presentation slides.
