Abstract

In Sri Lanka annually millions of funds allocate from the Government budget to the universities in Sri Lanka to ensure quality higher education system. There are 15 universities were established and functioned under the apex body of University Grants Commission (UGC). The general concern that university’s prestige depends on their teaching and research activates rather than the other facilities. However, in Sri Lanka there is an ongoing debate that efficiency of some universities are affected by regional disparity, location or size. In this study we focus on measuring efficiency of all state universities in Sri Lanka using Data Envelpment Analysis (DEA). Further analysis focused on the degree of efficiency by regional disparity or the size of the university.
