Southern University A&M College welcomed Dr. J.S. Clark as the new African American leader and president in 1914 after the big move. As Dr. Clark as president, he made numerous improvements on campus and off campus. He established a Junior College, teacher-training curriculum, Agricultural Extension Program, a summer normal school, six brick buildings for instructional activities, five brick dormitories, and eleven wooden structures for the faculties. Before his retirement came, he funded money from the government to build a library, a football stadium, an administration building, a gymnasium, and additional dormitories. During this time period, Felton G. Clark, J.S. Clark only son, was one of Southern’s most promising
Universities can sell sponsorships to various companies for advertising (at a minimum of about $300,000 per year) and have recently begun naming their stadiums after large corporations in exchange for large donations. Most large athletic departments have lucrative deals, worth about $1 million yearly, with shoe companies. Many colleges receive a substantial amount in royalties for college merchandise, which is sold under official license; some schools receive up to $6 million annually from this source. Coaches also stand to make a significant salary (including base salary from school as well as television, radio, and shoe company stipends) with the highest paid football and basketball coaches currently earning $1-$2 million a year (Eitzen 2000). Even among schools who don’t produce these extreme amounts of revenue,
Two specific groups that I identify with as part of my decision to attend Columbia Southern University is based on my family and work. As an individual my choice to attend is based on my own desire to achieve a higher education in order to obtain a job that is satisfactory to the life and goals I have mapped out for myself. By having a job for which I have specifically attended school for, it will allow me to get and sustain a career conducive to my own happiness and prosperity. While my own individual choice to attend school is great, I have a family that encouraged me greatly in this decision. Both my mother and father, between the two, have a Master’s degree in criminal justice, and a Bachelor's degree in paramedic studies. Naturally
The topic of this paper is the states’ decreasing financial support of higher education, the reaction and response from institutions who have lost funding, and the creative ways public institutions are locating additional streams of revenue. States have been the primary backer of public institutions, but since the recession states have shown less commitment financially while still heavily regulating higher education. As a result some institutions have had to change their practices while others have challenged their state’s regulations all together. Many have speculated that state funding may never return to its former highs. Rather than make an enemy of the state, some schools have discovered new and unconvential ways of raising funds for their institution.
Approaching the halfway point of the program brought me to the Introduction to School Finance EDA 6240, which focused on the fiscal management of the organization and utilizing resources to maximize an environment conducive to learning. Because public education is a responsibility of each state, funding public education is crucial to creating a productive and successful society. The Florida Education Funding Program (FEFP) equalized funding for education regardless of how wealthy one area is over the other. An important component of the FEFP is the full time equivalent (FTE), which represents a student who was present during the Survey FTE week. Money is earned for each one of the FTEs. Learning about the base student allocation, the amount
Florida State University is one of 145 colleges in Florida. The history behind it just makes it ever so unique and more differentiating from those other colleges. Florida State University gained its beginning in 1823, where the “Territorial Legislature began to plan a higher education system” (Florida State University: History,
Colleges and universities receive tremendous amounts of money each year. Most donors give to one specific organization or department each time, to insure they are well taken care of. “ Too many benefactors donate to institutions that are already well provided for.” The colleges that get the most money are the wealthiest schools. There are many “Well deserving” colleges that do not get nearly as much. Colleges like, The Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art, are tuition free schools. Western Oregon University also offers very low tuition. The donors money could be put to good use at these schools that are more focused on educating the minds of students rather than gaining a
Florida State University, founded in 1851. It has an undergraduate class of 32,948. Its urban lifestyle makes for a comfortable life on campus life. The campus has 475 acres. It uses a semester based calendar. Florida State University's ranking in Best Colleges, 96. Its in state tuition and fees are $6,507. Out of state tuition and fees are $21,673.
During this time of exponential growth in the private for-profit sector, the industry benefited from changes in Federal government policies. The U.S. government saw private colleges as a way to expand the choices in the education market. It also saw them as a way to meet demand for education and to develop a more skilled workforce in the United States (Harkin, 2012). To assist in the expansion of this sector of education, constraints on Federal financial aid were loosened, and accredited for-profits enjoyed increased access to Federal student aid funds (Loonin, 2011).
As described earlier in this report, for-profit colleges are allowed access to federal financial aid only under particular circumstances. First, for-profit schools must meet a market test, demonstrating that a portion of their revenue comes from somewhere other than federal aid. Even though this requirement has serious loopholes, many for-profit colleges still come very close to transgressing the 90 percent limit on Department of Education revenue, so the
A surging $1.2 trillion in student debt and rising rapidly in tuition is the critical issue America public universities face today. These student debts and rising tuitions are caused mainly by administrative hiring and pay or expensive building projects on campuses. When public universities are spending money toward expensive building projects, this does not help with making tuition cheap to attend a certain university, instead it’s high.
Now all types of institutions - public and private, two year and four year, non-profit and for-profit-are vying for the same pool of students, public funding, research grants, and prestige. In the process they are creating a fierce competition that is slowly chipping away at higher education’s commitment to servicing public needs. (Couturier, 2005, p. 87)
Financial aid is a sensational implement for students all around the world. It is done in several different ways and benefits the lives of so many people. Different levels of government work together to fund students by providing programs like FAFSA. The federal government ensures the cooperation of state and local governments by providing funds to help them implement important programs.
In order to gain control over the allocation of resources throughout the university and also to balance the monies being distributed amongst the revenue centres a system of participation/subvention was used by the university administrators. These participations were mere equal contributions (20% of the total tuition fees, sales and service income, and indirect cost recoveries) from all revenue centres and were redistributed back to them as block grants called subventions and these participations were portrayed as negative and subventions as positive indirect income. These features in fact enabled university administrators to focus on university priorities and goals. In allocating subventions their main focus was firstly on differentials in the costs of educating students in different fields and secondly, the revenue centres’ cost/quality ratios.
There is a State University video and it seems cool. It offers a lot of majors and the school is nearby the house. One time he visited the school and has a tour with his parents. There is one tour guide that assist them to the whole University and it seems that he doesn’t know what he’s doing and they wasn’t able to complete the tour. And when they go to the gigantic lecture hall the lights are off and the tour guide can’t find the switch to turn the
