The Impacts of the Private Colleges' Systematic Features on Student Affair's Budget Preparations and Implementation Controls in Taiwan for the Last Four Years
In order to help improve student affairs problems at private colleges in Taiwan， authors took the viewpoint of budget accountability to explore the student affair’s budget problems (including budget preparations and implementation controls) which were more frequently encountered by colleges with different systematic features. After surveying 257 relevant administrators at private colleges in Taiwan in 2003 and 2006， the authors analyzed the impacts of college attributes， founding eras of colleges and ages of school restructuring on student affairs’ budget preparations and implementation controls. The results showed that all three systematic feature variables were influential on student affair’s budget problems. More student affair units had better resources and powers in general colleges than that in technological and vocational colleges. It was also founded more student affair units lacked unit budgets and digested the budgets in general colleges than that in technological and vocational colleges. On the contrary， least student affair units had better resources and powers in junior colleges， and least student affair units lacked unit budgets and digested the budgets in those colleges. More private colleges founded earlier than that colleges founded later had the problems such as distributed student affair powers， improper budget management and staff unfamiliar with regulations. The fewest respondents who felt student affairs’ corresponding budgets were sufficient. Those who have high expected for improvement， typically from colleges with work experience less than one year. The results and implications were discussed. In the final， the authors provided some suggestions for solving the problems.
