(p.67) 5 Basic Financial Structure of Public Universities
Public No More
Stanford University Press

This chapter describes the financial structure of public universities in the U.S. It analyzes the implications of the changing sources of revenue and the increasing competitive pressures facing public higher education and suggests that the shifts in demand and financing sources negatively affect current funding patterns and threaten research. This chapter highlights the need for public universities to adopt a fully supportive financial model and to narrow their scope of activities and focus on programs and research activities that provide selective differentiation and distinction.

Keywords:   public universities, financial structure, U.S., sources of revenue, competitive pressures, higher education, financial model
