Question :Will academic departments be eliminated if they’re not bringing in revenue?
CU Denver has many high-cost programs that generally do not cover costs through student tuition, fees and state support. Because we value our high-cost programs, we will continue to subsidize them with revenue from lower-cost programs. Complex university campuses like ours have always provided this type of cross-subsidy to ensure the health of high-cost programs. The new, incentive-based model makes those types of decisions transparent and reveals the internal economy of the campus. This allows for a clear understanding of costs and strategic decisions to support programs that are important to the full programmatic needs of a university.
