A Comparison of Education and General Expenditures at CUNY and Select Peer Institutions, FY 1990 to FY 1998.
This document is a report on a comparison of unrestricted Education and General (E&G) expenditures at the City University of New York (CUNY) and other select universities, colleges, and community colleges between the 1990 and 1998 fiscal years. Unrestricted funding revenue is limited to public support and tuition. Revenue from private gifts, grants, contracts, endowment, educational service, and other auxiliaries were not included. The colleges and universities used for this comparison were chosen based on their Carnegie classification, urban mission, and student demographics. The report shows that spending at CUNY senior four-year colleges declined 13% ($132 million) between 1990 and 1998, even though total senior college enrollments showed a 6% increase, and community colleges enrollments rose 17% during the same time period. Results indicated that most senior colleges in the state are spending about $2,000 less per full-time equivalent student (FTES), while most CUNY community colleges are spending approximately $1,200 less per FTES. Colleges, community colleges, and universities in other states showed better expenditure increases compared with their CUNY counterparts. Six out of 11 national senior colleges in the comparison group showed an increase in expenditures during the decade, with five of the colleges displaying double-digit percentage gains. The report provides statistics and tables showing comparisons between colleges. (MKF)
