One thing colleges can do is make far more extensive use of technology and online classes. There is no reason to pay a tenured professor big money to deliver a Physics 101 lecture 6 times a week, the same lecture he he's been giving for the past 30 years. Have the old guy give the lecture once, record it, put it online.

Sure if you think that all there is to learning is attend a lecture, listen and then take tests. At my daughter's university, student not only can ask questions of the professor during the lecture but are encouraged to do so.
