Abstract:

The paper develops a simple deterministic model that relates student admissions and enrollments to the final demand for educated students. It includes the effects of drop-out rates and student-teacher ratios upon student enrollments and faculty staffing levels. Certain technological requirements are assumed known and given. These, as well as the laws of flow conservation and the relationships between equilibrium enrollment levels and average flow rates, are used to predict the effects of specific administrative policies and institutional controls at the campus level.
