Financing Two-Year Institutions of Public Higher Education in Wisconsin.
Wisconsin Coordinating Council for Higher Education, Madison.
This study of the financing of Wisconsin University Centers, branch campuses of the state universities, and associate-degree technical education focuses on the cost to the student, to supporting localities, and to the state. Interest in the subject was prompted by apparent inconsistencies in financial support levels and aid formulas among the various kinds of public 2-year institutions in the state. Analyzed are: (1) financial support for instruction and other operating expenses and for capital outlay for facilities and equipment; (2) the cost of freshman/sophomore public education--(a) student expense for tuition, (b) local contributions such as buildings, grounds, and continuing maintenance, the ability of communities to support the institutions, and the variation in local financial ability, and (c) state support of 2-year collegiate and technical education, including a comparison with equivalent lower-division costs on 4-year campuses; (3) various fiscal alternatives and their effect on the state taxpayers; and (4) recommendations. The anomalies and inconsistencies prompting this study are described. (HH)
