JAM Other State Universities
Receive More Maintenance
Per Student.
in the great tri.incular ana the
points of which are Minneapolis, Se
attle an<l Berkeley, California, the Uni
versity of Washington is the hading
institution of higher education. In
fact, in all that part of the United
States which lies west of the Missis
sippi, there is only one university—the
University of California —which sur
passes the University of Washington
in enrollment, renown, and possibly,
academic standards. The nearest ri
vals to the University of Washington
on all these scores are Missouri, Kan
sas, Texas, and Nebraska.
Every one of the western univeril
ties, whether distanced by Washington
or in practically the same class, en
joys a greater measure of financial
support, as indicated in the average
cost to the state for each student en
rolled, as well as jn the average build
ing values per student. Some of the
state universities of the West —some
of them very near neighbors of Wash
ington—have three times as much
working income as Washington has.
The neighboring state of Idaho
spends $535 per student per annum.
The cost to the state of Washington
for each student enrolled in the Uni
versity of Washington in a given year
is $185. Nevada spends $634 a year
per student, against Washington $185;
Nebraska, $325; Missouri. $434; Tex
as, $260; Colorado, $236; Arizona,
$760; Wyoming, $234; lowa, $536.
Washington's cost per student not only
Is lower than that of every country,
dropping below even that of Indiana,
$506, the one state university with a
lower average value of buildings.
Low Yearly Maintenance. -.
The total yearly maintenance ap
propriation received by the University
of Washington is $450,531. The sum is
raised entirely by the mill tax fixed
by the legislature as the University's
proportion in the direct taxes by the
state. The maintenance of other state
universities in Washington's class
runs as follows: Kansas, $551,776 —
a hundred thousand dollars more than
Washington receives; Nebraska, $1,
--078,383—a half million dollars more
than Washington's appropriation; Mis
souri, $1,106,535 —more than six hun
dred thousand dollars more than
Washington receives; Texas. $625,000
—two hundred thousand dollars more
than Washington's total income.
Those universities that have less
students than Washington has might
logically be expected to receive less
for maintenance, but they would not
be expected to receive as more propor
tionately. Yet the facts, as shown in
statistics compiled from their own re
ports, make it evident that they do re
ceive a great deal more in proportion
than Washington gets. Washington has
10 ttmes more students than Arizona,
yet has less than three times more In
come on which to maintain itself;
Washington has nearly three times as
many students as Colorado, yet not
twice as much maintenance; Wash
ington has between five and six times
as many students as Idaho, yet re
ceives less than twice as much as
Idaho does.
Burdening Teachers Heavily.
An inquiry into the operating con
ditions at the University of Washing
ton will demonstrate that the annual
Income of the university is most eco
nomically expended. It has to be,
since the university has 3,200 students
to teach and to care for at the lowest
figure allowed by any state university
In the country for average expenditure
per Btudent. Perhaps one item may
be taken as an indication of the severe
economy which the university prac
tices in its several affairs—the salariei
paid the members of the teaching
In thin connection there is something
besides enrollment to be considered,
though it is an important factor.
Whether the university had 800 stu
dents or 5,000, the people of the sUte
would want the best teachers pro
curable for their sons and daughters.
Competition among universities for
good teachers is keen and increasingly
keener. The modern university pro
fessor must be not only a good teach-
er but a good administrator, because
heavy business and executive and even
clerical duties are laid upon him, es
pecially if he be the head of a depart
ment of the university. For these,
and other reason's, the pay of a profes
sor cannot be fixed rigidly by th»
numbers in his classes or in the uni
Rigid Economy Enforced.
But usinc the enrollment as a basis
for determining the memberß of a
class, it is to be noted that the max
imum and minimum salaries paid mem
bers of the faculty in no ca»e are
higher at Washington than at other
universities in the same rank, and in
almost all cases are lower. There
.6 no waste evident in this regard.
On the contrary, Washington is put
to it constantly to retain its good
teachers against the economic advan
tape that other universities can hold
out to them.
The maximum salary for a teacher
of full professorial rank at the Uni
versity of Washington is $3,000. At
the 11 eithboring state university of
; It if $4,000; at Indiana, $4,KM;
at lowa. $5,000; at Missouri. $4,200; at
Tans. $4.»00. And at every on* of
those universities, except, possibly at
Missouri, the demands made on the
time and energies of a professor ar«
less than they are at Wajhinft*n.
