1972-73 Instructional Expenditures Study.
Washington State Council on Higher Education, Olympia.
The following tables are the result of the Council on Higher Education study of 1972-73 unit costs in public institutions on higher education. This study is the first effort in this state (and perhaps any state) to clearly relate all costs to the instructional, research, and public service efforts of all the public institutions of higher education. The information base has been built from a detailed level (e.g., upper division biology courses or dental assistant technology courses started after the eighth day of instruction) and aggregated upward. This report includes information covering the community colleges, the state colleges, and the two universities. The cost data are presented in a format compatible with the "Program Decision Structure," and are also compatible with structures being developed nationally for the presentation and analysis of higher education costs. In reviewing the figures contained in this report, comparisons of overall averages except in those cases where the institutions offer reasonably similar instructional programs should be avoided. The same rule applies to comparisons of graduate costs at the state colleges and universities where the differences in program size and type significantly affect costs. (Author/KE)
