Instructional Program Budgeting in Higher Education.
Clark, David G.; Huff, Robert A.
This document illustrates one approach to the preparation of an instructional program budget and how it might be used to enhance the allocation of scarce resources in higher education. The ideas presented here are intended only as an introduction and will provide the reader with a brief overview of program budgeting as the term is currently used at the National Center for Higher Education Management Systems (NCHEMS). The examples shown draw upon information that will be generated by forthcoming NCHEMS cost simulations models, particularly the Resource Requirements Prediction Model (RRRM) 1.6. This booklet focuses only on an institution's direct instructional expenditures. No costs for activities such as research, libraries, student counseling, physical plant operations, or academic administration are reflected in either the organizational unit line-item budgets or in the instructional program budgets illustrated.
