I won't go into much detail, but I work at a young private university at a non-managerial position.
The uni has a strong need for better teachers and more adequate students. In my opinion, a viable strategy for quickly increasing the education quality level would be to focus on only 1 faculty/ department/ specialty first, because:
It would be cheaper to focus on one department (i.e. program creation, teachers acquisition and salary, advertizing to students).
Even if a lot of students drop out due to suddenly intensifying the program, students from other departments would continue to financially support the university.
Being great at one thing while temporarily neglecting others is better than being below mediocre at everything.
Focusing on one department would mean:
Intensifying the program.
Attracting good teachers.
Attracting better students (more willing to learn, with better background) (with the help of 1. and 2.).
I believe intensifying the program and attracting good teachers for one department (probably for CS) before attracting better students is the way to go.
I have a CS background and can help with creating the program (classes).
If I manage to convince the people in charge, how should we go about attracting good teachers (probably from other universities)? Adequate salaries would probably not be enough.
Thanks for the answers!
