Equity Effects of Entrepreneurial Community College Revenues
Dowd, Alicia C.; Grant, John L.
Community College Journal of Research and Practice, v31 n3 p231-244 Mar 2007
This study conceptualizes entrepreneurial forms of community college revenues as undermining finance equity and examines their distribution through a single-state case study. The hypothesis that colleges serving wealthier communities will be more successful in obtaining revenues from performance funding and private fundraising is tested. Based on a Spearman's correlation analysis of college rankings of community wealth and revenues received from governmental and private sources, the findings show that wealthier colleges in Massachusetts are not more or less successful in garnering funds from performance incentive programs or fundraising. The potential effect of these forms of revenues on finance equity is considered. The study provides a model for replication in other states. (Contains 2 tables.)
