Trends in Higher Education in the United States. No. 5. Financing the Program. A Review of Recent Literature. A Report to the Commission on the Future, the Lutheran Educational Conference of North America.
Pfnister, Allan O.
An analysis of the current literature presents a mixed picture of the financial crises affecting colleges and universities all over the country. This report presents an overview of the way in which this financial situation appears to have developed and the variety of suggested solutions. Sources of income for an institution are reviewed and ways of increasing these sources are discussed. Further, the report discusses categories of expenditures and what institutions have attempted to do in becoming more efficient through instituting economies. Finally, the report turns to general issues of policy as these relate to both income and expenditures, and notes what several national commissions have suggested as possible approaches to dealing with the situation.
