The Volume and Cost of Instructional Services at Virginia's Colleges.
Adkins, Chase M., Jr.
Following the recommendations of the Higher Education Study Commission Report of 1965 to the Governor and General Assembly of Virginia, the State Council of Higher Education produced this report on instructional volume and cost. The report, based on data from 27 state-controlled Virginia colleges and universities for the Fall 1967 term, analyzes 3 areas: courses and classes, student-credit-hours produced; and faculty and instructional costs. For tabular presentation and analysis, the 4 academic levels of courses (foundation, lower, upper, and graduate and professional) and student-credit-hours produced are divided into 27 subject areas. Faculty instructional volume is determined on the basis of the number of student-credit-hours resulting from classes taught. The average instructional cost per student-credit-hour for all institutions ranged from approximately $15 at the foundation level to $37 at the graduate and professional level. Of the approximately 7000 courses taught, approximately .1% were at the foundation, 44% at the lower, 41% at the upper, and 15% at the graduate and professional level. The data are presented extensively in tables. An appendix includes summary tables. (DS)
