For example, many professors do not teach undergradutes directly, yet their salaries are funded by tuition payments.

Most research conducted on campus does not benefit undergraduates, yet is largely funded through undergraduate tuition payments.

If you want to get the most bang for your buck, go to a community college for your first two years (where there is no research infrastructure), and then transfer.

As of 2005, there were 1699 public and 2441 private colleges. If all of them go into debt at the same rate as the sample reported by Moody’s, then debt service per student is proportionally increased, to $2,250 per student per year.

And this is only what’s left on colleges’ balance sheets: most of the construction costs are passed through to students in the form of increased tuition and fees, increasing outstanding student debt. And that one increased dramatically, from $200 billion in 2000 to $1 trillion today.

Ultimately causation runs backwards. Student loan bankruptcy changes in 1999 and 2004, leading to a massive expansion in availability of federally guaranteed student loans, funded by Wall Street money, leading to a shift in supply and demand, leading to higher tuition costs and more money available for construction projects.

Fat fat fat things that are sucking up way too many resources for the services they provide. There are so many backwards incentives and broken reward structures. Students choosing schools based on the poshness of their dorms while they and the government take out debts to pay for those dorms they scarcely understand.

A decent private college along my commute route just made a dorm that is absolutely a nicer place to live than most most of the graduates will be able to afford once they get out of school. Sure helps them in the rankings though I bet! And the students don’t price discriminate much so the 15% tuition increase it required doesn’t matter.

These are non-for-profit entities with high ratings that offer a very valuable collateral, the result is a very low interest rate. This allow the schools to invest their endowment instead of using it for construction, effectively making their endowment a leverage investment that uses a very cheap loan. Since trustees would not allow the schools to make other leveraged investment, this allows the schools to generate higher returns without fully disclosing the risks.

I read the article, and wondered how much of this was the “Edifice Complex,” and how much of this was needed work. Over the past 15 years, I’ve worked with a lot of academics, and many of their facilities were in dire need of upgrades, if not total re-builds.

No clue how much this contributes to tuition growth, however.
