University of San Francisco Institutional-Level Financial Indicators, FY 1968-1969 to FY 1972-1973.
Counelis, James S.; Rizzo, Claude J.
To manage effectively the higher education enterprise is a complex matter. Part of the problem of managing complexity is the need for monitoring data in time series such that the on-going enterprise is viewed at comparable times in comparable terms. Part of the answer at the University of San Francisco is the development of time series data on students, curriculum, faculty, and a number of noncurricular items. However, the need for systematic financial review called for time series data on financial categories. But beyond such tuition and fees history and specific financial data, the need for certain meaningful ratios or indices is evident. There is also a need to study the balance sheet data over several years and subject these to important meaningful indicator construction. This paper is committed to the development of appropriate theory for total institutional analysis of the university enterprise. This document provides for cross-institutional comparability through the taxonomy of WICHE/NCHEMS Program Classification Structure (PCS). Hopefully, this effort proves useful to institutional needs in budgeting and planning as well as useful to others with similar needs. (Author)
