A Comparison of Unrestricted Current Fund Revenue at CUNY and Select Peer Institutions, FY 1990 to FY 1999.
This document compares unrestricted funding revenue at City University of New York (CUNY) with other select universities, colleges, and community colleges from the 1990 fiscal year to the 1999 fiscal year. Unrestricted funding revenue is limited to public support and tuition. Revenue from private gifts, grants, contracts, endowments, educational services, and other auxiliaries are not included. The selected colleges and universities were chosen based on their Carnegie classification, urban mission, and student demographics. The report shows that: (1) unrestricted funding revenue at CUNY senior four-year colleges declined 15% ($154 million) between 1990 and 1999, even though enrollments and tuition both increased during the same time period; (2) unrestricted current fund revenue at the national senior college peer group rose 16% between 1990 and 1999; (3) enrollment-based state aid, maintenance of effort legislation and increased funds for facility improvements at Hostos, LaGuardia, and Kingsborough community colleges during the 1990s left the CUNY community college system with smaller funding losses than those experienced at the senior colleges; and (4) total unrestricted current fund revenue rose 4% at the community college peer institutions.
