The Development of a System of Administering and Measuring Strategic Expenditures in Private Colleges. Research Report.
Arthur, William James
"The broad purpose of this research was to examine long-range financial planning at the policy-making level in private colleges and universities. As a result of the study, a method can be suggested which is expected to sharpen the information available to top administrators when they consider the alternatives for allocation of scarce financial resources. The instrument proposed here will be helpful in converting the educational objectives of the institution into financial strategies." Chapter I introduces the study; Chapter II develops the concept of a three-stage financial planning model. Chapter III considers cost administration; Chapter IV develops and analyzes the 3 stage model. Findings and usefulness of the model at Lynchburg are presented in Chapter V. Chapter VI analyzes the model's applicability in 5 private college and university settings. Chapter VII summarizes conclusions and suggests areas for further study that can extend the understanding of the concepts presented in this research. The 200 pages of appendices contain interviews concerning the model's success with administrators of the 5 participating institutions. (Author/NF)
