Regulatory Cost Impacts for Selected Institutions of Higher Education in Texas.
Thornton, Nelson L., Jr.
Regulatory cost impacts for 11 Texas colleges and universities for the 1977-78 academic year are presented as part of a continuing effort to assess the costs and impact of federally mandated social regulations. The 11 institutions are representative of each of the types previously reviewed as groups. For each institution, data are presented on the cost of regulations, including dollar average per institution, student, and student full-time-equivalent; the percent of annual tuition and fees, dollar cost per faculty member, and semester credit hour; the percent of faculty compensation, social benefits to faculty as percent of faculty compensation, and total dollar cost of social benefits to faculty; the percent of regulation cost for faculty salaries reported plus cost of social benefits to faculty; institutions offering retirement, medical, and social security plans; the percent of institutional instruction expenditures and of research expenditures; the percent of federal, state, and local appropriations; the percent of unrestricted endowment income, restricted endowment income, and end of year endowment book value, and the percent of current value of library holdings, books, and periodicals. The study group schools are: Alvin Community College, El Centro College, Tarlton State University, Sam Houston University, Texas State Technical Institute, University of Texas (Medical), Concordia Lutheran, Lon Morris College, Our Lady of the Lake University, Southwestern University, and Baylor College of Medicine.
