The Education Advisory Board catalogues ideas for enhancing alternative revenues supplemental to the core income sources of tuition, research, and development. Knowing not every idea is suitable or every institution, this initiative endeavors to help university leaders understand a full range of activity across higher education and sure they are not overlooking suitable to local culture and physical assets.
Notes from phone call with Keppler (3-21-13)LSU Residential Life SnapshotSix thousand students presently live on campus. Eighty-five percent of freshmen live on campus. Research indicates the 15 percent of freshmen that live off-campus chose to do so for various reasons (independence, campus is within close proximity of family home, etc.). Requiring Freshmen to Live on Campus…Currently, requiring freshmen to live on campus is not feasible, as LSU residence halls have reached capacity with more than 700 students on a waiting list. Requiring freshmen to live on campus would not generate more revenue; it would be a revenue neutral decision at this time. If you require all freshmen to live on campus, it would force LSU to require upperclassmen to move off campus after completing their first year. This is a concern for both in- and out-of-state undergraduate and graduate students, as well as students without vehicles.Revenue will only grow by increasing the number of beds.
Notes from phone call with Dr. Keppler (3-21-13) Department of Residential Life: Vision 2020 Strategic Plan, http://studentlife.lsu.edu/sites/studentlife.lsu.edu/files/attachments/Vision%202020%20-Update%201-2012.pdfHousing Master Plan: As LSU Residential Life completes a residence hall’s renovation, it takes another hall “off line” to begin its renovation. In fall 2012, LSU Residential Life completed the renovation of Laville Honors College In fall 2013, Annie Boyd Hall will re-open, adding 160 beds. New Residence Hall projectIn August 2015, LSU Residential Life will introduce a new residence hall to grow inventory by 300 to 350 beds. LSU Residential Life also has plans for the installment of another new residence hall in 2016, with approximately 300-350 beds. At this point (in 2016), Dr. Keppler believes more than 85 percent of freshmen will live on campus, and there will be more upperclassmen and graduate students living on campus due to the increase in inventory (beds). Dr. Keppler is very interested conducting a tour of one of the newly renovated facilities, particularly East Laville.
