Developing Performance-Oriented Models for University Resource Allocation
Educational Studies and Research
This article examines some methodologies for allocating instructional resources within a large, public university. Models are developed for allocating equipment and current expense funding that incorporate objective or performance-oriented variables, as well as weighting variables that enable decision makers to quantify the more subjective elements of the allocation process. As examples, the recent application of the models at Kent State University is described in order to illustrate the flexibility of these approaches in use.
