Management of accessibility for handicapped students in higher education by National Association of College and University Business Officers( Book )

6 editions published in 1981 in English and held by 265 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This compendium of four mini-projects carried out by a special task force of the National Association of College and University Business Officers (nacubo) addresses policy and management issues related to providing accessibility to handicapped students in higher education. Topics range from executive policy decisions on compliance with federal accessibility mandates to operational procedures for responding to specific accommodation requests. The compendium is comprised of four sections: Section 1 was developed from a series of site-visit interviews with senior-level decision makers, faculty, staff and handicapped students at six colleges and universities. It contains an overview of accessibility issues and problems that require attention, a discussion of how accessibility considerations can be incorporated into a planning and budgeting process, and a set of guidelines for assessing specific accommodation requests; Section 2 reviews 16 national data bases that describe the handicapped population in the United States and contains summary charts of the characteristics revealed. Section 3 describes the results of a survey that nacubo mailed to a stratified sample of 944 of its member institutions concerning trends in accessibility expenditures and number and types of handicapped students served; and Section 4 lists adaptive education equipment by impairment (such as hearing or mobility) and then by function (such as writing or speaking). The document contains an index, equipment source list, and lists of information resources and services available to handicapped students. (Glr)
Financial responsibilities of governing boards of colleges and universities by Washington, Dc National Association of College and University Business Officers( Book )

6 editions published between 1979 and 1985 in English and held by 215 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A reference manual on financial activities of a college or university and the interactive role of the governing board is presented for board members and institutional officers who provide information to the board. Financial data related to a fictitious hybrid university are included. After identifying three broad kinds of financial information (routine and periodic financial reports, presentations requiring board discussion, and background reports), the following concerns are addressed: the college's overall condition and institutional direction, and external influences. Potential sources of funds and policy issues are considered, along with planning and budgeting concepts needed for a financial strategy. In addition, financial policy issues are discussed concerning faculty and staff, purchasing, maintenance of capital assets, energy, long-term and working capital, fund accounting, and implementing a reporting system. Questions concerning each topic are included. The following types of reports are covered: annual state of the institution, long-range plans and budgets, operating reports, results of operations, and external auditor's report. Sample financial statements, a glossary, and a 36-item bibliography are included. (Sw)
Costing for policy analysis by Washington, Dc National Association of College and University Business Officers( Book )

3 editions published in 1980 in English and held by 137 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Cost behavior analysis, a costing process that can assist managers in estimating how certain institutional costs change in response to volume, policy, and environmental factors, is described. The five steps of this approach are examined, and the application of cost behavior analysis at four college-level settings is documented. The institutions and areas of analysis are as follows: Denison University-operation and maintenance (o&m) of physical plant; Drake University-instructional capacity; Santa Fe Community College-student services; and the University of Wisconsin System--library services. A major feature of the Denison study is the method used to assign o&m service levels to particular kinds of rooms. In the Drake study, a formula was developed that shows classroom utilization as an important feature of the study. The Santa Fe study is useful for its validation of the requirements of different kinds of students for varying levels of student services. The library study undertaken at the Wisconsin System was a component of a much larger effort to develop a formula to appropriate state revenues. The method used for dividing library services into those that are affected by student enrollments and those that are affected primarily by acquisitions is also significant. It is suggested that the case studies reveal the challenge of applying cost behavior analysis to the internal reallocation of resources and to state allocation of funds. (Sw)

A college planning cycle, people, resources, process : a practical guide by National Association of College and University Business Officers( Book )

2 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The process described in this manual is one of the few systems for planning and budgeting in colleges and universities that is meticulously detailed. It includes the unique concepts of the planning team and the analytical studies team, and promotes a cooperative, integrated, and enthusiastic involvement of faculty, students, and staff from all levels of the institution, resulting in more willing acceptance of final decisions. Other features are the relatively simple procedures, annual repetition of the process, and specific results of a logical and systematic program and budget review. The value of institutional planning itself is evident in various ways: it (1) helps the institution progress in ways that its trustees, officers, faculty, and students consider most suitable; (2) provides a process for institutional response to challenges in the environment; (3) presents various alternatives available to the institution; (4) becomes a vehicle for response to strengths and weaknesses; and (5) focuses on utilization of resources to best advantage. Sections of the document cover: planning and budgeting in colleges and universities; the planning and budgeting system; the planning and budgeting cycle; and other planning and operating considerations. Appendixes include: illustrative sample forms; black sample forms; and flow charts. (Author/PG)

Risk management and insurance; guidelines for higher education by John Franklin Adams( Book )

1 edition published in 1972 in English and held by 79 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Insurance companies, following the campus unrest of the late 1960's and early 1970's, became rather wary of insuring college and university campuses because of the great amount of risk involved. As a study committee found, however, the risk of insuring educational facilities had been overestimated due to widespread newspaper and television coverage of isolated incidents that were generalized to the entire higher education community. This document is meant to be a guide to college and university administrators who are unaware of the means and approaches to minimizing risks in order to obtain lower insurance premiums. Chapters are included in the guidebook on: (1) Risks Peculiar to Higher Education; (2) Discovering and Evaluating Risks and Exposures; (3) Loss Prevention and Loss Limitation in Higher Education; (4) the Nature of Insurance; (5) Property Insurance; (6) Casualty and Liability Insurance Coverages; (7) Insured Fringe Benefits; (8) The Insurance Market; and (9) Risk Management, Institutional Administration, and Policymaking.

Contracting for services by Robin E Jenkins( Book )

1 edition published in 1982 in English and held by 66 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The major steps a college should undertake in contracting for services, including the initial determination as to whether or not contracting is the best way to provide a particular service, are described. Three general activities that apply to decisions about contracting in most circumstances are: investigating service characteristics; identifying service objectives; and defining performance standards. Performance specifications for most services required by a college could include a schedule of work; a list of materials and/or equipment to be provided by the contractor or institution; and facilities that will be available for performing the service. The next phase includes the activities necessary to evaluate the relative merits of feasible service delivery alternatives and select to the most appropriate one. In making this determination, it is important to evaluate the cost-effectiveness and quality of the services offered under each alternative. The effects of different alternatives on employees, including student workers; on the cohesiveness and integrity of the campus community; and on current collective bargaining agreements must also be considered. The third phase deals with issues that must be resolved to ensure that the specific alternative chosen is best from the institution's point of view, and that the selection process itself is open and fair. In selecting a contractor, it is important to develop a service budget, prequalify bidders, develop a request for proposal, solicit bids, and evaluate the proposal. The final phase encompasses the development and negotiation of the contract documents, administration of the contract, and periodic evaluation of the contractor's performance. (Sw)

Excellence in higher education guide : an integrated approach to assessment, planning, and improvement in colleges and universities by Brent D Ruben( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2009 in English and held by 60 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Self-assessment leads to stronger performance in the nation's colleges and universities. That's the premise of "Excellence in Higher Education," a model self-assessment program that has earned accolades from the higher education community. Based on the Malcolm Baldrige National Quality Award framework, the fourth edition of this bestseller is the definitive tool for college and university administrators in defining mission, assessing stakeholders, measuring outcomes, gauging performance against other institutions, and ensuring continuous improvement. The new "ehe" provides a framework that integrates the Baldrige criteria with the standards and language developed and used by accrediting associations. The book provides facilitators with a solid understanding of the "ehe" model, providing detailed guidance in each of seven areas: (1) leadership; (2) strategic planning; (3) beneficiaries and constituencies; (4) programs and services; (5) faculty, staff, and workplace; (6) assessment and information use; and (7) outcomes and achievements. The "Workbook and Scoring Guide" and Facilitator's Guide cd-rom both include generously illustrated PowerPoint presentations for use in facilitating workshops. The scoring guidelines will help readers interpret results and gauge their institution's performance. A glossary is included. Individual chapters contain notes. (Contains 26 figures and 2 footnotes.)
