Report

Action Steps for Funding Higher Education Capital Outlay

February 17, 2000 - We recommend that the Legislature evaluate capital outlay proposals by the three segments as a statewide system rather than independent segments and apply statewide guidelines when making funding decisions. This will allow the state to use limited resources to maximum effect.

Report

Equalization Funding for California Community Colleges

Report

Moderate Sustained Higher Education Enrollment Growth Projected for Next Decade

February 17, 2000 - Total enrollments in CCC, CSU, and UC will grow by an average of 2.2 percent from 2000 to 2010. Although this rate is somewhat higher than those of the previous two decades, it is a much lower rate than in the 1960s and 1970s.

Report

Annual Budget Process Provides a Better Higher Education Partnership

February 17, 2000 - We recommend the Legislature not endorse the proposed "partnership" with the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) because it would reduce legislative flexibility in balancing its budget priorities and it could reduce incentives for CSU and UC to increase productivity.

Higher Education "Compacts": An Assessment

August 26, 1999 - We recommend that the Legislature not endorse a multiyear funding plan for UC and CSU.
