Full Sail University could receive $ 1.3 million from a property tax exemption designed exclusively for universities


When we go beyond the traditional boundaries of education, we can find that it is at the heart of everything we do. What we do is based on what we know and have learned, whether through direct instruction or observation and assimilation. When we are not making the effort to learn, our mind is always processing new information or analyzing parallels and small subtleties in the context that make the subject stand out or appear different. If so, then the mind has the capacity to learn more; nevertheless, it is we who prevent ourselves from expanding our limits of knowledge through self-doubt or other social, emotional or economic constraints. Our stumbling and inept response to the pandemic is still ongoing. Higher education, an essential component of our society, should become the next vector of contagion in six weeks. Currently, 50% of all colleges and universities plan to

Why do administrators put the lives of faculty, staff, students, and our general population at risk?

Think about it. Next month, as currently planned, more than 2,800 whiteboard-equipped cruise ships and a younger cohort will set sail amid a raging pandemic. The density and socialization on these cruise ships could make college towns across America the next virus hotspots.

The sad truth is that many university presidents think they have no choice. University is an expensive operation with a relatively rigid cost structure. Occupancy contracts and collective agreements entail the highest cost (salaries of teachers and administrators) near real estate objects. The average salary for a full professor (before fringe benefits and administrative support costs) is $ 104,820, although some earn much more, and about 50% of full-time professors are full-time professors. While some universities benefit from income streams from technology transfer, hospitals, returns on multi-billion dollar endowments, and public funding, most colleges have become dependent on tuition fees. If students don’t come back in the fall, many colleges will need to take drastic measures that could have serious long-term repercussions on their ability to complete their assignments. This macabre calculation resulted in a tsunami of denial.

Universities that recognize the truth have one thing in common: they can afford it. Harvard, Yale, and the Cal State System have announced that they will be hosting most or all of the courses online. Elite schools’ endowments and waiting lists make them largely bulletproof and more resilient to economic shocks than most countries – Harvard’s endowment is greater than Latvia’s GDP. On the other end of the glamor pole, Cal State’s reasonable $ 6,000 annual tuition fee and 85% of the off-campus population means the value proposition and underlying business model remains largely intact even. so the tuition moves online.

Over the past month, we’ve put together a worksheet that examines the immunities and co-morbidities of 441 universities included in US News and World Report’s top national college rankings. This dataset compiles figures from the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System (IPEDS) managed by the US Department of Education, US News & World Report, Google Keyword Planner, Niche.com’s Student Life Scores and the Center on Education & the Workforce. This dataset should not be considered peer reviewed or final. It is a working paper that seeks to analyze and understand the American college and university landscape and to help universities develop solutions.

We have plotted each university on two axes (four quadrants):
