Presented by Brett Powell on January 20, 2016
This presentation to the Legislative Task Force to Study the Realignment of Higher Education was intended to provide state and national context to support the objectives of the task force. Those objectives, as they have been stated in the enabling legislation and by the task force chair, include:
- Examining the potential for efficiencies in Arkansas higher education in light of any identified redundancies
- Determine methods for improving efficiencies through cost-saving mechanisms
- Improving accountability to the General Assembly
In light of these objectives, the presentation is organized around the financial and governance contexts which should be considered in addressing the desired improvements in efficiency and effectiveness of Arkansas higher education.
