Value of Higher Education

Colleges and universities provide immense value to students, communities, and society—and communicating that value is increasingly important. Business officers are uniquely positioned to articulate the value of higher education from a financial perspective. The tools below can be used for presentations, social media posts, media interviews, and more.

2019 Perceptions and Priorities

Download the Slide Decks

NACUBO has created three slide decks to accompany our 2019 Perceptions and Priorities statement. Each corresponds to a priority highlighted in the piece and can be used in presentations and on social media. A handful of slides illustrate the same concept in different ways, allowing members to tailor their presentations to their audiences.

The slides are available exclusively to members. Endnotes are also available.

Slide Deck 1: Household Income is Not Keeping Pace with the Cost of College Access

Slide Deck 2: Providing Quality Higher Education Requires Significant Investment

Slide Deck 3: Higher Education Provides a Lifetime of Value

Note: On July 8, 2019, NACUBO updated slide deck #3 to correct a transcription error on slide #14.
