Data relating to the undergraduate tuition pool

The “Budget Model Principles” documents includes this description relating to the distribution of undergraduate tuition revenue (principle 2, item d):

The remaining [undergraduate] tuition pool will be returned to 1) the home college in which the student is enrolled and 2) colleges where instruction occurs as determined by the college home of the instructor(s)/faculty member(s) teaching (in the case where a course is taught by administrative staff the funding will go to the home college of the course).

Documentation on the Brio query that was historically used to assemble these data is available here.
