Year-Round Operation in Higher Education

February 12, 1999

 


Higher education will experience steady, moderate enrollment growth over the next decade. As a result, most University of California, California State University, and California Community College campuses will soon reach their current capacities. The state will then be faced with providing space for these students. In order to serve these students, we recommend that the three segments move to year-round operation. This means the segments would provide the same level of educational services in the summer as they now provide in the fall, winter, and spring.
