Post Secondary Education - Finances

Managing day to day finances properly takes time, thought, and planning. This applies to many aspects of life, including planning for post-secondary education. Making the decision to further your education is an exciting one, but not all. Canadians cannot afford post-secondary education, nor pay for it in advance with one lump sum. There are several forms of education financing and loans available, to allow you to pay for your education over time and many different providers. Student financial assistance is provided by the government of Canada, and options may include affordable student loans, grants, and scholarships. A financial adviser can offer information and assistance regarding the various education financing options available. Do you have questions regarding the cost of post-secondary education in Canada? Are you looking for resources available within your community to help you manage your financial picture and afford post-secondary education? Kinjunxion is here to help with sources of support and information.

Higher Education Finance Research

Policy, Politics, and Practice

There is a void in the literature on how to conduct research in the finance and economics of higher education. Students, professors, and practitioners have no concise document that examines the field, provides history, definitions of terms, sources of data, and research methods. Higher Education Finance Research: Policy, Politics, and Practice fills that void. The book is structured in four parts. The first section provides a brief history and description of the general organization of American higher education, the sources and uses of funds over the last 100 years, and who is served in what types of institutions. Definitions of terms that are unique to higher education are provided, and some basic rules for conducting research on the economics and finance of higher education are established. Although in some ways, conducting research in higher education funding is similar to that for elementary/secondary education, there are some important distinctions that also are provided. The second section introduces guiding philosophies, sources of data, data elements/vocabulary, metrics, and analytics related to institutional revenues and expenditures. Chapters in this section focus on student oriented revenues, institutionallyoriented revenues, and funding formulas. The third section introduces accountabilityrelated concepts by first examining the accountability movement in higher education and performancebased approaches applied in budgeting and funding, then looking at methods to determine public and private returns on investment in postsecondary education, and closing with an examination of finance from the perspective of the primary consumer: students. The fourth and last section of the book focuses on presenting postsecondary finance research to policy audiences to assist in connecting academic research and policy making. Chapters focus on accounting for time considerations in analysis, the placing of data in context to make the data and findings relevant, and ways to effectively communicate findings to various policymaking audiences.

Assessing Quality in Postsecondary Education

International Perspectives

For many years the benefits conferred by a higher education went undisputed. But students, employers, governments, and taxpayers are now demanding evidence of educational quality and value. At the same time, fiscally strapped governments are raising questions about how institutions are funded and the role quality should play in setting funding levels. In the face of these mounting pressures, jurisdictions around the world are working toward designing meaningful indicators to measure the performance of postsecondary institutions that go beyond enrolment numbers, graduation rates, and ever-popular reputational rankings. Assessing Quality in Postsecondary Education: International Perspectives presents a collection of thought-provoking essays by world-renowned higher-education thinkers and policy experts that discuss ways of defining and measuring academic quality. The papers were presented at a conference convened by the Higher Education Quality Council of Ontario in May 2017 and provide valuable insight into this pressing issue and underscore the need for reform.

The Encyclopedia of Taxation & Tax Policy

From adjusted gross income to zoning and property taxes, the revised edition of The Encyclopedia of Taxation and Tax Policy offers the best and most complete guide to taxes and tax related issues. More than 150 tax practitioners and administrators, policymakers, and academics contributed to this unique and authoritative reference. The Encyclopedia examines virtually all tax instruments used by governments (individual income, corporate income, sales and value-added, property, estate and gift, franchise, poll, and many variants of these taxes), as well as characteristics of a good tax system, budgetary issues, and many current federal, state, local, and international tax policy issues. The new edition is completely revised, with 40 new topics and 200 articles revised to reflect six years of legislative changes. Each essay provides the generalist with a quick and reliable introduction to many topics but also gives tax specialists the benefit of the best thinking of other experts in a manner that makes the complex understandable. Reference lists point the reader to additional sources of information for each topic. The first edition was selected as an Outstanding Academic Book of the Year by Choice magazine
