Responsibility Centered Management (RCM) Part 2: Campus Costs and Myths
In part one of this four-part series on Responsibility Centered Management (RCM), I presented the basic features of RCM, including the fact that no two versions of RCM are the same. Institutions have found ways to create comfortable versions on how to distribute tuition income and handle certain expenses. In this article, I discuss the critical setting of school subsidies along with the various ways that administrative projects can be funded and how the taxation of the responsibility centers (RCs) to provide resources for campus costs and services is determined. Finally, I discuss some assumptions about negative consequences of RCM.
