Special Funding Formula for State-Supported Upper-Level Institutions.
Reed, Bevington
Upper level colleges, those institutions offering only junior and senior year baccalaureate programs and programs leading to master's and doctoral degrees, could be funded under the same formulas as other colleges and universities, but the development of a special funding formula is highly recommended. In the state of Texas, the funding formula for 4-year institutions has been broken down into specified areas such as General Administration, Student Services, Departmental Operating Expense, Organized Research, etc. It is felt that 3 areas in the funding formula deserve special consideration when planning for the upper level college. These are student services, library support and faculty salaries. The area of student services should be examined carefully to insure that adequate funds are available for good, individual counseling in upper level institutions. The formula for library support also needs to be studied carefully to determine whether or not the present formula for 4-year institutions would be equitable to meet the needs of institutions offering only upper level and graduate work. There are distinct differences in the costs of salaries for teaching lower division and upper division courses, since lower division courses are generally taught by less experienced and lower salaried persons and upper division courses are generally taught by more experienced and higher salaried professors. Thus, it stands to reason that a separate funding formula for faculty salaries would be called for. (HS)
