Abstract

Policymakers acknowledge the regional benefits of the university, yet cut higher education budgets. Incorporating the theory of diffusion of innovation, we develop a mathematical model to explore the long-term effects of university budget cuts. Simulations indicate that the full impact of budget modifications may not be realized for several decades.
