Resource Stewardship, Revenue Growth and Diversification

Committee Charge

Bentley must meaningfully grow its revenue and available resources, by expanding its reach and offerings into adjacent spaces, focusing on new programs (credit earning and non-credit earning), as well as developing partnerships and services that align to our core business strategy and brand. By doing so, the goal is to enhance available resource streams by a significant amount unrelated to undergraduate tuition and room/board. To achieve this increase and diversification of revenue and available resources, Bentley will add additional auxiliary/ancillary revenue streams, facilitate greater external research funding, and generate additional resources through advancement efforts to augment tuition. This healthier balance will allow the university to accumulate capital, protect its balance sheet, and reinvest in critical university strategic priorities, including those that can help make our campus more diverse, equitable and inclusive. To enable the university to reach this goal, we must also consider the alignment of current resources and efforts to allow the university to strategically invest in areas of growth.
