The Capital Costs Of A University.
Winslow, Frederic D.
This study examines the capital cost component of higher education. The focus is on data related to the capital stock of the University of California. A conceptual framework is provided as a method for analyzing three types of choices facing university decisionmakers. These choices concern: (1) the relative size of various educational programs by level and discipline; (2) the relative emphasis of instruction and research; and (3) the amount of support capital for administrative and service functions. Chapter two contains definitions of capital and depreciation and provides a conceptual approach to the measurement of capital costs. A theory is developed and applied in a descriptive analysis of measures of capital stock and capital costs based on the Irvine campus of the University of California. (Author/MJM)
