New Services to Help Colleges
Deal with Fiscal Crisis on Campus
As your college/district deals with the multi-million dollar cuts coming from state capitols, the College Brain Trust has developed a multi-dimensional approach to help colleges and districts sustain their mission and education goals. And save money.
We recognized during this budget crisis it may be difficult to hire consultants. That is, unless you can demonstrate consultants serve a critical need, help the college maintain its mission and save money. The consultants of the College Brain Trust believe these services meet and exceed both these critical benchmarks.
The four services are based on a statewide survey the Brain Trust conducted in January of CEOs, and subsequent interviews with many of you and your colleagues. In that survey, over 80% of CEOs believed these four services would be “very” or “possibly” helpful in these fiscally challenging times.
Service #1 – Comprehensive budget assessment and analysis to identify cost savings, opportunities to increase revenue and improve operations
- Innovative budget solutions
- Planning, consultation and implementation
- Training and development
- Budget templates
Service #2 – Consortium to provide support for:
Service #3 – Reduce costs by using consultants to backfill vacant positions:
- Vice Presidents
Service #4 – Reorganize administrative structures and workloads
- Right-size staff
- Reduce costs
- Increase efficiency
- Maintain effectiveness
The College Brain Trust now includes more than 50 respected and experienced consultants that are dedicated to helping community colleges continue to meet and exceed their mission, education goals for students and local community needs.
We understand and appreciate the sensitivity of hiring consultants during these difficult budget times. It’s a difficult issue, especially for colleges with limited funding. However, colleges may experience significant budget savings by taking advantage of the reduced costs associated with using outside consultants to maintain existing services and programs.
