The Numbers on Our Small Classes

In John Warner’s “Yes, Small Class General Education Courses Do Make Money,” he challenged people to calculate their revenue to the college. So we thought we’d try. Here are our numbers:
Here are our assumptions:
2/3 of students are in-state, 1/3 out-of-state.
We estimated our salaries cost the university $40,000 with benefits (John Warner estimated benefits cost an extra 20%).
In-state Tuition per credit hour= $316
Out-of-state Tuition per credit hour=$794

With a 4/4 load, we cost the university 2.4 mil, but we bring in 17 mil, profit of 14.6 mil.

With the proposed 5/5 load, we cost the university 2.4 mil, but we bring in 21.7 mil, profit of 19.3 mil.

So, moving to the 5/5 WITHOUT a pay increase costs the university NOTHING and makes them 4.6 mil in additional revenue.

Not happy about this, then, please sign our petition.
