This chapter describes the evolving external educational environment and the tactical responses to it made by public research universities in the U.S. It considers the perceptions of and reaction to rising tuition fees and university responses to declining state support and discusses the actions necessary to sustain the quality and financial health of these universities. This chapter also suggests that public universities' emphasis on tuition could shift students' attention to private universities that can better respond to their needs and societal priorities.
