Determining the Profitability of Academics, the Basis for Performance-Based Funding

Presentation Summary

How do you determine the true financial contribution of a section, department or college? BGSU sought to answer this question in support of its new performance based funding initiative. Working in concert with University Finance and Human Resources, the data warehouse team developed a subject area within the data warehouse that provides an analysis of gross and net revenue on a per unit basis for every class section offering as well as faculty salary and wages as they are applied to faculty course work on a per unit basis. This has enable the university to determine which sections, departments, and programs are paying for themselves and which are not.
