The University of Missouri System is steadfast in its commitment to be responsible stewards of university assets and resources.
UM System realized more than $80 million in administrative efficiencies and operating effectiveness measures in 2012. Since 2009, the university’s cumulative savings and revenue enhancements have totaled $411.7 million.
UM System’s institutional support expenditures—which include general administrative services, executive management, legal and fiscal operations, public relations, development, and central operations for the physical plant—were 21 percent less than the national average of public doctoral universities.
In addition, while institutional support expenditures nationally declined 4 percent from 2008 to 2010, the university’s expenditures declined by 9 percent. This data is based on an analysis of national statistics collected by the Integrated Postsecondary Education Data System.
More than $21 million in revenue enhancements were realized last year, mostly the result of net tuition and fees due to enrollment growth and management; entrepreneurial activities; grants and sales of surplus property. The system also realized savings of more than $16 million as a result of competitive contracting and other procurement activities.
