Recommitting to Lincoln’s Vision: An Educational Compact for the 21st Century
This Lincoln Project final report recommends new strategies to help public research universities respond to changing societal, economic, and financial pressures. It offers a series of recommendations to help sustain and strengthen public research universities over the long-term and focuses on three specific strategic directions:
- Renewed state support, new cost efficiencies, and additional revenue streams to help public research universities respond to financial challenges;
- New public-private partnerships to sustain and strengthen research and education for the future; and
- A continuing effort to improve the ways public research universities serve individual students.
