The Advantages of Work-Study Plans.
Rauh, Morton A.
The conventional response to the financial crisis facing higher education is to increase tuition or request larger legislative appropriations. Another response, however, is possible--the wider use of cooperative education or work-study plans. There are three distinct advantages to work-study plans: (1) learning takes place in less costly settings than the classroom, the laboratory, and the library; (2) the capacity of the physical plant can be used to serve more students; and (3) the increased enrollment can be served without proportionate increases in costs. This paper discusses the calendar and financial operations of: (1) the conventional model extending over a nominal 9-month period; (2) the 4-quarter work-study model; all based on a student enrollment of 1000, a faculty of 100, $2,100 tuition, and a median faculty salary of $14,000.
