New Analyses Show Decades of Decline in Direct State Support for CSU and UC

This May, The California Budget & Policy Center published a report: “New Analyses Show Decades of Decline in Direct State Support for CSU and UC.”  Here’s an excerpt:

California’s public university systems — the California State University (CSU) and University of California (UC) — have seen substantial increases in enrollment since the early 1980s and currently educate a total of nearly 700,000 students. However, a pair of Data Hits from Budget Center Policy Analyst Amy Rose shows that even as their student populations have grown, direct state investment in CSU and UC has declined significantly. State funding for higher education is expected to be among the key issues for deliberation as legislators and Governor Brown work to finalize a new state budget in the coming weeks.
