Evolving Practices and Emerging Innovations in Community College Finance
Mullin, Christopher M.
New Directions for Community Colleges, n168 p115-125 Win 2014
Besides the shift in community college funding from the state to the student, a number of other innovations and trends have emerged with respect to community college finances. This chapter explores some of these developments, including performance-based funding, changes in student and institutional eligibility for financial aid, changes in local funding, generating revenue from institutional data, and the potential financial impact of massive open online courses (MOOCs). Clearly, the financial landscape of community colleges is changing dramatically, calling for more skillful financial managers and entrepreneurs.
