10:15 amEvaluating the Financial Contribution of Academic Programs

Ross Koenig, Rochester Institute of Technology

All universities struggle with program creep and related resource allocation issues.  This presentation explores an independent comprehensive institution’s  efforts to create a model that  calculates the financial contribution of each academic program.   In the analysis, revenues are assigned and costs are allocated at the program level to reflect how well each covers its own expense at various levels of responsibility.  The goal of the effort is to advise academic affairs in its resource allocation and program portfolio management efforts.
