Deferred Maintenance of People and Place

Beloit College sits on a historically significant campus filled with landmark buildings and bold, aspirational people, but the resources needed to maintain both have often been lacking. In the spring of 2011, College President Scott Bierman and the board of trustees called this shortage of resources “a longstanding deferred maintenance of people and place.” At the time, college leaders estimated that the operating budget was short by about $7 million annually (in real dollars), $5 million of which reflected the deferred maintenance of people (faculty and staff compensation), and $2 million of which reflected deferred maintenance of campus buildings and infrastructure.
