Confronting the New Depression in Higher Education. Two Budget Exercises.
Millett, John D.
This document presents two budget exercises for educational administrators to provide means for the improvement of management and planning efforts in higher education institutions. The examples, Principal College and Major University, are fictional institutions, but their statistical data and problems will be easily recognizable as being close to those of many colleges and universities in the United States. Principal College, representing a small liberal arts college, and Major University, representing a large research university both have serious financial problems. The problem for the president of both institutions is to reduce the expenditures authorized for the coming year along with the related auxiliary problems associated with cutbacks. The author presents objectives and programs, financial statistics, instructional procedures, expenditure analysis, admissions policies, research enrollment, and governance of each institution. The solution of each institution's problems is left with the reader. (PG)
