Q&A with Rebecca Bell

What is the favorite part of your job and the impact you make?

Building long standing relationships with my clients built on trust.  My goal is to become a trusted partner they can lean on for important decisions to help them to reach their strategic goals.

Which of the challenges higher education faces do you hear most during conversations with clients?

During conversations with clients, one of the challenges in higher education that often comes up is the enrollment cliff. This refers to the anticipated decline in the number of high school graduates, which can lead to decreased enrollment in colleges and universities. Clients are concerned about how this demographic shift will impact their institution’s ability to attract and retain students, maintain revenue streams, and remain competitive in the higher education landscape.

Addressing the enrollment cliff requires strategic planning and innovative solutions to adapt to changing demographics. Clients often discuss the need to diversify their student populations, enhance recruitment efforts to target underrepresented groups, and explore alternative revenue streams to mitigate the potential financial implications of declining enrollment.

In addition to the enrollment cliff, clients also frequently mention other challenges such as rising tuition costs, increasing competition from online and non-traditional education providers, and the need to meet evolving student expectations for flexibility, affordability, and career readiness. These conversations highlight the complex and multifaceted nature of the challenges facing higher education institutions today.
