International Survey of Research University Leadership: Outlook for University Revenues (ISBN No:978-1-57440-460-9 )

This 50- page report looks closely at the opinions on university revenue prospects of a sample of 314 deans, chancellors, department chairmen, research institute directors, provosts, trustees, vice presidents and other upper level administrators from more than 50 research universities in the USA, Canada, the UK, Ireland and Australia.  The survey participants give their opinion on prospects for revenues from state aid, tuition, fundraising, research grants, patents and licensing, and from sales of university services such as medical care, rental of university facilities, publishing ventures and other sources.

Just a few of the report’s many findings are that:

Universities of all countries surveyed were relatively pessimistic about the outlook for funding from state sources but those from the UK/Ireland seemed especially so, and 33.33% expected a Probable significant decline in revenue from state sources.

More than 55% of those sampled who actually work primarily in university marketing or fundraising expect an increase in funds from donors,
