Should the State of Michigan Provide Financial Assistance to the Independent Colleges and Universities of Michigan?
MetadataShow full item record
The first section of the following report consists of a research paper which examines the role which independent colleges and universities play in Michigan's higher education system. The second section contains a copy of the summary report for the internship project which was submitted to the employer at the end of the term. The third section describes the relationship of the internship to academic experiences, both past and anticipated. More specifically, the research paper examines the issue of whether or not the state government should provide financial assistance to independent colleges and universities. The analyses indicate that there are not only social, but also substantial economic advantages to state supported, private institutions of higher education. Among what are referred to as the social advantages are: a wider variety of higher educational opportunities, competition for state universities which results in improvements on both sides, greater overall student capacity, and unique private school missions. The economic benefits occur in the form of a lightened tax burden resulting from the decrease in demand for public higher education which the private institutions cause. The information contained in the paper leads to the conclusion that state appropriations to programs for private institutions are indeed justified and it provides a useful economic method for determining the levels of state aid which result in a net savings to taxpayers. The subject of the internship project was to lay the groundwork for future investigation into methods for collecting state expenditure data on both a county and a state legislative district basis. The conclusions of the work done on the project are that a standardized system, usable by every department, of data collection in these two formats is probably a long way off. The investigation did reveal, however, that there are several departments which have fairly accurate systems for collecting their own county-by- county expenditure data. The third section explains that while no specific college classes were of singular value, the writing skills which were acquired at K proved to be very useful. Additionally, previous job experiences contributed substantially to this work experience. It is also noted in this section that all of the work experiences will certainly be of assistance in the event that graduate studies in business are later pursued.
