Universities and colleges struggle to stem big drops in enrollment

The Hechinger Report
There has been a sharp drop in the number of individuals choosing small, nonprofit colleges as well as public universities and other higher education institutions. Due to a decrease in the birth rate, there are fewer 18- to 24-year-olds graduating from high school, particularly in the Midwest and Northeast.

In response, institutions are reducing tuition while finding ways to tailor academic offerings to student and workforce demands.
