UHV employee and finance data

The study uses two general types of information: 1) data collected from the university and 2) regional economic data obtained from various public sources and Emsi’s proprietary data modeling tools.3 This chapter presents the basic underlying information from UHV used in this analysis and provides an overview of the Coastal Bend economy.

3 See Appendix 5 for a detailed description of the data sources used in the Emsi modeling tools.

Employee data

Data provided by UHV include information on faculty and staff by place of work and by place of residence. These data appear in Table 1.1. As shown, UHV employed 414 full-time and 95 part-time faculty and staff in FY 2018-19 (including student workers). By FY 2028-29, the number of employees is expected to grow to 704. In FY 2018-19, 99% of employees worked in the region and 88% lived in the region. This is projected to remain unchanged for the FY 2028-29 analysis. These data are used to isolate the portion of the employees’ payroll and household expenses that remains in the regional economy.

Revenues

Figure 1.1 shows the university’s annual revenues by funding source—a total of $73.7 million in FY 2018-19. As indicated, tuition and fees comprised 30% of total revenue, and revenues from state and federal government sources comprised another 46%. All other revenue (i.e., auxiliary revenue, sales and services, interest, and donations) comprised the remaining 23%.

Figure 1.2 shows the university’s FY 2028-29 annual revenues by funding source— an anticipated total of $102.8 million. The proportion of tuition and fees is projected to change very little at 31% of total revenue, and revenues from state and federal government sources to grow to 51%. All other revenue (i.e., auxiliary revenue, sales and services, interest, and donations) will decrease 5%, making up the remaining 18%.

Expenditures

Figure 1.3 displays UHV’s FY 2018-19 expense data. The combined payroll at UHV, including student salaries and wages, amounted to $34.4 million. This was equal to 36% of the university’s total expenses for FY 2018-19. Other expenditures, including operation and maintenance of plant, construction, depreciation, and purchases of supplies and services, made up $61.1 million. When we calculate the impact of these expenditures in Chapter 2, we exclude expenses for depreciation and interest, as they represent a devaluing of the university’s assets rather than an outflow of expenditures.

Figure 1.4 displays UHV’s projected FY 2028-29 expense data. The payroll at UHV is expected to increase from $34.4 million to $48.9 million. Other expenditures, including operation and maintenance of plant, construction, depreciation, and purchases of supplies and services, will make up $74.8 million, which is an increase compared to the $61.1 million in FY 2018-19. Once again, we exclude expenses for depreciation and interest.

Students

UHV served 5,313 students taking courses for credit and 90 non-credit students in FY 2018-19. These numbers represent unduplicated student headcounts. The breakdown of the student body by gender was 35% male and 65% female. The breakdown by ethnicity was 32% white, 68% students of color, and <1% unknown. The students’ overall average age was 29 years old.4 An estimated 82% of students remain in the Coastal Bend after finishing their time at UHV, another 13% settle outside the region but in the state, and the remaining 5% settle outside the state.5

4 Unduplicated headcount, gender, ethnicity, and age data provided by UHV.

5 Because UHV was unable to provide settlement data, Emsi used estimates based on student origin.

TABLE 1.2: BREAKDOWN OF STUDENT HEADCOUNT AND CHE PRODUCTION BY EDUCATION LEVEL, FY 2018-19

TABLE 1.2: BREAKDOWN OF STUDENT HEADCOUNT AND CHE PRODUCTION BY EDUCATION LEVEL, FY 2018-19
CategoryHeadcountTotal CHEsAverage CHEs
Master’s degree graduates 319 5,065 15.9
Bachelor’s degree graduates 663 10,113 15.3
Continuing students 4,339 75,976 17.5
Dual credit students 82 583 7.1
Total, all students 5,403 91,737 17.0

In order to reach 6,000 FTEs, UHV assumes a 6% growth rate in the number of students annually enrolled. Applying the 6% growth rate starting in FY 2019-20, UHV will reach 6,000 FTEs, or 9,947 students, by FY 2028-29. For this analysis, we assume the same proportion of student breakdown and average CHE production by education level as presented in Table 1.2. The total CHEs completed by the 9,947 students that will be served in FY 2028-29 will amount to 168,881 CHEs.
