Impact of State Assistance on Oregon's Private and Independent Institutions of Higher Education.
Large, Larry
In assessing the impact of Oregon's program of state assistance of independent colleges, this study examines two critical dimensions of the receiving institutions: (1) the impact of their financial health; and (2) the subjective reactions of their administrative personnel in terms of how the funds are used and what, if any, special problems or advantages the program presents to their institutions. The impact of the program on the financial health of the receiving institutions is measured by an index of institutional financial health. The Index is composed of a series of ratio analyses using selected data from the annual Higher Education General Information System (HEGIS) reports. The Index design permits isolation of any one of nine categories of variables and thus permits evaluation of any one of the variables relative to the overall financial health of each of the institutions or of a group of institutions with a common intervening program, such as state assistance. The findings reflect both satisfaction on the part of the receiving schools and measurable improvement in the financial health of the institutions as measured by the Index. Appendices are included.
