There's a new "global" way of organizing the economic information about an individual college or university that leads to a new way of tracking and understanding the changes that have been overtaking higher education, natioinally. The paper gives a simple introduction to this way of looking at colleges and universities, defining the major relationships between prices, costs, and subsidies that govern these schools, then applying this structure to the analysis of national economic data from 1986-87 to 1994-95 for most of the colleges and universities in the US.
