CHAPTER IX
EXPENDITURES
THE income of the institutions in the committee sample was discussed in the preceding chapter. Attention now shifts to the expenditures for the same period.1 The categories employed in presenting the data are those of Badger's "The Economic Outlook in Higher Education." The data are taken largely from the forms used in the preparation of the economic outlook studies.2 The material will be discussed under these divisions:
1. Expenditures for administration, resident instruction, libraries, and physical plant operation and maintenance. (The blanks on which the United States Office of Education collects the data do not separate these items, and it is accordingly necessary to consider them as a single group.)
2. Expenditures for organized research.
3. Expenditures for extension and correspondence work. In addition to the above current expenditures, the following will be separately considered:
4. Capital outlay.
5. Total expenditures: current and capital.3

The expenditures included in these categories do not constitute all expenditures of the institutions. The items that are omitted are (1) those having to do with the operation of the auxiliary enterprises such as dormitories, dining halls, athletics, etc. and (2) noneducational expenditures such as payments of annuities; repayment of loans and payment of interest on them, scholarships and fellowships (not involving instruction); and promotional campaigns to attract students or funds when such expenditures are not a permanent part of the institutional program. Basing the estimate upon an analysis of total expenditures of universities, colleges, and professional schools (excluding teachers colleges and normal schools) as shown in the Biennial Survey for 1929-1930, it may be said that the expenditures that are analyzed in this chapter constitute approximately 75 per cent of all

1
It should be recalled that 194 institutions are common to both the income and expenditure lists, and one institution reported on expenditures that did not report on income. The present chapter is thus based on a sample of 195 cases.

The source is described fully on p. 153.

For general definition of the categories the reader is referred to Financial Reports for Colleges and Universities, University of Chicago Press, Chicago, 1935.
