Do not think about, write about or deal with human behavior without determining the effects of incentives. It’s not their money, of course they’ll waste it.
This had to happen. Only crazy people want to go into crazy environments. How to destroy a university– Listen to those who have no point, but make it loudly, constantly and, of course, pointlessly. Give in to them. Of course, crazy hysterics will never be satisfied so giving in is pointless.
Curious How Racial Protests Have Affected Enrollment At University Of Missouri?
Gee, who couldn’t see this one coming? After the racial protests at the University of Missouri, enrollment has plummeted a whopping 25%. Don’t you just love unintended consequences? Would you send your kids to Mizzou after those protests? I wouldn’t and I wouldn’t pay for it either. Enrollment is down dramatically for both undergraduate and graduate programs. Applications for fall enrollment this year have dropped 19% from last year this time. At this rate, the university won’t be viable financially much longer. No tears here over that development. Graduate student applications are also down 19%. This won’t stop the Marxists and racists from protesting there. In fact, they may step it up as they now control the narrative and the school.
Gotta admit – this didn’t cross my mind when all those safe space whiners were holding the University of Missouri hostage a few months ago. Even when I saw comments (both here at Chicks on the Right and other places) of parents saying they would never send their kids to Mizzou after all this, I didn’t think about what that meant for the school. Heck, I even saw prospective STUDENTS saying they wouldn’t attend the school if that’s how things were. Goes to show that there are consequences for everything, even ones that you didn’t expect.
According to this, the number of applications has gone down since the racially-charged protests at the University of Missouri were making headlines and causing a great deal of embarrassing infamy for the school. Enrollment is on the decline as well – both for undergraduate and graduate programs –
In terms of hard numbers, Missouri’s flagship taxpayer-funded university has seen 914 fewer freshman applications this year compared to last year.
Applications for fall 2016 from potential students who are black have dropped 19 percent compared to fall 2015.
Applications from prospective graduate students have also fallen 19 percent.
Mizzou has seen a 7.7 percent reduction in applications from students with composite ACT scores of 30 or higher (typically the 95th percentile).
Prospective students from Missouri are applying at about the same rate. However, deposits for actual enrollment among Show Me State residents are currently down nearly 10 percent.
Applications from would-be students from other states are down a whopping 25 percent compared to 2015.
This isn’t a game… it’s life and death for school administrators and the board of trustees, as well as professors and others. It wouldn’t surprise me if school officials weren’t meeting and figuring out ways to get rid of these radicals and fast. You know, it’s much easier to prevent something like this than to get rid of an infestation. Many professors are joining these radical students, so if the higher-ups have a prayer, they better figure out a way to get rid of them too. They’ve done almost irreparable damage to the school and its legacy. As budgetary cuts bite and scholastic programs are cut back on, these ivory tower liberals will blame the football team and conservatives. They’ll blame school leadership and parents. They’ll lay blame everywhere, but where it belongs right at their own feet. That’s what radicals, racists and Marxists do best… blame others and whine.
Radical professors with no reason what they are protesting.
These are student revolutionaries. They are revolting.
