“Headwinds in Higher Education: What’s Happening to Tuition Prices, University Finances, and Why It Matters”
Scott Beaulier, NMU Economics Alumnus, Dean of the College of Business at North Dakota State University
Dr. Beaulier has 15 years of experience in higher education as a professor and university administrator. He has spent his career understanding and advocating for policies that foster dynamic, vibrant economies that best allow businesses and entrepreneurs to thrive, but recognizing that people — innovative, creative, and dedicated business leaders — are the life blood of any economy. Previously, Dr. Beaulier was head of a research center in the WP Carey School of Business at Arizona State University and of the Manuel H. Johnson Center for Political Economy at Troy University. Dr. Beaulier holds a Bachelor of Science in Economics and History from Northern Michigan University and a Master of Arts and PhD in Economics from George Mason University.
The talk focused on national trends in higher education, some of the shocks we are seeing to budgets throughout the country and will connect the big picture narrative to Dr. Beaulier’s own experiences.
Organized by the Center for Economic Education and Entrepreneurship with the Economics Student Association, and the support of the NMU Foundation. This lecture is also part of the Skill Builders! series.
