Tollefson, Terrence A.; And Others
In September 1977, a questionnaire was distributed to the members of the National Council of State Directors of Community and Junior Colleges to determine how and to what extent the various states fund their two-year colleges and how the colleges must account for fund utilization to their funding source. Reponses were received from 29 states: Alabama, Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, California, Colorado, Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Minnesota, Mississippi, Missouri, New Jersey, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, South Carolina, Virginia, Washington, West Virginia, and Wisconsin. The study addressed questions related to: (1) levels of appropriations and student receipts; (2) methods of establishing state funding levels, such as formula budgeting; (3) methods of allocating state funds to public two-year colleges; (4) methods and timing of counting students; (5) number of students; (6) proportional full-time equivalent enrollment in transfer, vocational, and other programs; (7) types and frequency of audits; (8) timing of adjustments in state legislative appropriations; (9) submission of budget requests by individual colleges; and (10) approval of new programs; presidential, faculty, and staff hiring, salary, and dismissal; and new facilities. The report includes tables summarizing levels of appropriations and tuition receipts and numbers of students. (AYC)
