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. The emphasis is 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 others are options for individual institutions.
