Coping With Cuts

Inside Higher Ed
August 27th, 2015

Four-year public colleges and universities have increased their education-related spending even as overall funding has declined.
The revenue declines are due to lowering state contributions. And while public universities have raised tuition rates to make up for large state funding losses, they have not fully offset the difference with tuition hikes.
Those are the findings from a new analysis the Association of Public & Land-grant Universities (APLU) has released. The report looked at revenue and spending on a per-student basis at 621 public four-year institutions between 2007 and 2013, including at 193 APLU member universities. The association's members include public research universities, land-grand institutions and state university systems.
