Evaluation of Year-Round Operations at the University of California and the California State Colleges.
Touche, Ross, Bailey and Smart, San Francisco, CA.
This document presents an evaluation of the year-round operations (YRO) at the University of California and the California State Colleges. A comparison of YRO and YRO alternatives and the success of conversion planning led to four basic conclusions and recommendations: (1) The concept of YRO is sound and can result in significant total cost savings; however, the advantages of conversion to YRO can be great, or nonexistant, on an individual campus. These differences prevent the overall conclusion from being applied to every campus and college. The decision to offer YRO must be a local one, based on the economics of the individual campus. (2) The decision to offer summer quarter at a particular campus or college must be based on a complete investment analysis. This will highlight the cost advantages of YRO at that campus or college. (3) Each college or campus that is to convert to the quarter system, and then initiate YRO, should follow the conversion planning schedule presented in this report. (4) Because the score and breadth of summer quarter course offerings have a profound effect on cost/full-time equivalent students, it is recommended that each college and campus study the effect of reducing the scope and breadth of the summer quarter course.
