Trends in Institutional Financing. Practitioner Report.
Data concerning higher education revenues during fiscal years 1973-1980 were collected. Four institutional perspectives were examined: market shares, sources of revenue, fund balances, and unit revenues. Six consumer-investor dimensions were also covered: the shares from federal, state, and local governments; private donor's share; the school's share; the student and family's share; and the total amount of resources going to higher education by source. Data were collected on: current fund revenues received by various types of institutions; educational and general (E&G) revenues; largest single source of current fund revenue and E&G revenue by type of institution; end-of-year fund group balances (current, loan, endowment, annuity, and plant) for public, private, and proprietary institutions; student-related revenues per weighted full-time-equivalent student by type of institution; federal aid to students by type of program; federal expenditures to institutions by purpose; federal tax expenditures; state and local government aid for current operations, tax expenditures, and capital costs; estimated voluntary support by source and purpose; institutional costs for operations and capital costs; and student-family direct and indirect costs. The data are accompanied by narrative explanations. (SW)
