New UNI president has eye on the future

The new president at Northern Iowa seems to be saying the right things, and that's a good start. But whether ideas are new or old, the big issue I hope to see UNI get turned around is the rather persistent slip in enrollment that they've dealt with for much of the past decade. When enrollment grows, revenue grows, and you have options. Steady enrollment is manageable, but slipping enrollment squeezes the budget in uncomfortable ways, and budget cycles become an exercise in damage control.
