Five Things We Learned When We Opened Rutgers’ Books
At our Open the Books events on November 9, Howard Bunsis, professor of accounting, used Rutgers’ own audited books and budgets to reveal that faculty and staff continue to generate big profits for the university. This treasure trove of information will be invaluable to all of the nearly 20,000 unionized employees heading into bargaining in early 2018.
Despite repeated requests, Rutgers refused to share its audited 2016–2017 financial reports, therefore data below is based on 2015–2016 numbers. Notably, even private institutions as well as our Big Ten peers post updated data on their websites, while regrettably Rutgers’ financial data remains incomplete, out-of-date and opaque.
Here are Five Things We Learned from Professor Bunsis. You can click here to watch the video of the Open the Books presentation.
