Financial Survey of Western State Extension Division: Summary Report, November 25, 1969.
Hawaii Univ., Honolulu. Coll. of Continuing Education and Community Service.
Information was collected from questionnaires returned by 26 of 40 institutions which included state institutions west of the Mississippi River plus some Big Ten schools east of the Mississippi. State appropriations, "General Fund", contributions to the extension divisions' total annual budgets ranged from 100% (1 school) to 0% (5 schools). Revolving funds on a self-support basis, "Special Funds", supply the following percentages: 100% to 85% (10 schools); 84% to 70% (7 schools) 69% to 30% (5 schools); under 30% (3 schools). Although only five schools reported having all administrative positions included in the regular state appropriation, 13 others reported a greater proportion of state-supported positions than their budget breakdowns suggested. The majority of schools reported 5% to 15% cancellations of degree-credit courses, with slightly higher mortality for non-credit classes. Of 101 per-course salaries 77 fell in the range $525-$825; non-credit salaries per hour of instruction varied from $5.50 to $100; tuition ranged from $15.00 to $25.00 per credit. Although the size and character of the extension operations reported varied greatly, comparisons in their financial aspects revealed a number of similarities. (nl)
