Scorecard on Colorado Public Higher Education: How the Public Higher Education System and Its Students Perform on Selected Measures.
Colorado Commission on Higher Education, Denver.
This report reviews the status of certain aspects of public higher education in Colorado in order to provide educators, public policymakers, and the public a measurement of the performance of Colorado college students and the higher education system as a whole. Data is provided on students, degrees, faculty, and higher education finance. The ScoreCard uses a number of measures to evaluate the system's effectiveness in four systemwide educational values, namely: Educational Excellence; Educational Access and Diversity; Efficiency in the Delivery of Education; and Adequate Resources for the Delivery of Education. Findings are summarized in four parts corresponding to the four values. Data are summarized for the following categories: Public Institution Total; State System Summaries (including research universities, other universities and colleges, specialized medical schools, and community colleges); and Local District Colleges. In addition, a section on recent trends notes the following: (1) Colorado ranked 40th in the 1991-92 state general fund plus tuition revenue per full-time equivalent (FTE) student; (2) total general fund and tuition revenue per FTE student increased in actual dollars by 3.2 percent, but decreased in constant dollars between 1990-91 and 1991-92; (3) since 1987-88, state financial aid per resident student increased 13.8 percent, from $230 to $261 per student; and (4) alumni and other private sources contributed over $72 million in 1991-92, up from $42 million in 1987-88.
