Summary

A discussion of higher education costs looks at two aspects of costs (the factors that influence them and the types of cost analysis) and synthesizes the results of a survey of state higher education officers (SHEEOs). A variety of factors influencing the number and type of resources available to a college are examined, including influences within the institution, within the higher education community, and external to higher education. Options for cost analysis are examined in terms of the purposes of the analysis and the methods available to accommodate them. Analysis types discussed include cost determination, explanatory cost analysis, and evaluative cost studies. SHEEOs' responses to two survey questions are analyzed. The first question focused on the officers' level of concern about each of 14 specific cost-related issues, and distinguished between the responses of coordinating board and governing board officers. The second question was designed to elicit opinion on where the best opportunities for improving productivity in higher education are to be found. Responses are summarized in six appended tables. Contains 6 references. (MSE)
