Higher Education: Resources and Finance

By Seymour E. Harris | Go to book overview

ment funds enable that university to rise to a point of distinction and above the level of the other public IHL. In contrast, in California, Berkeley boasts of its higher unit costs than UCLA, and UCLA in turn presents unit costs higher than the other branches of the University of California. Though salary scales for all branches of the university are similar, Berkeley and Los Angeles are allowed to pay above the maximum of $13,000 to $14,000 ( 1959). Moreover, general unit costs tend to be higher in the universities than in the four-year colleges, and higher in the latter than in the junior colleges. Teaching burdens also vary.

A committee of the American Council on Education ( President Pusey, chairman) wisely pointed to the wastes of unnecessary duplication of programs associated with institutional imperialism and special-interest pressures. President Charles Odegaard of the University of Washington and the president of the Land-Grant Colleges in 1955 also had some judicious remarks. But the Pusey committee also wisely warns against oversimplified use of unit cost studies. ". . . Society, however, must challenge those who refuse, in the name of economy, to face the implications of such facts as the urgent need for first-rate teachers and the present scarcity of good libraries and laboratories required to futher the expansion of knowledge."23
