CSU Budget Updates
(May 14, 2013) — Governor Brown’s May Revision of the 2013-2014 state budget continues to propose an additional $125.1 million in state funding for the California State University and also maintains reinstating $125 million that was cut from last year’s budget and was due to be reimbursed in this year’s budget following the successful passage of Proposition 30. The proposal also states that the administration will work with the colleges and universities, legislature and other stakeholders on a framework that would link future budget augmentations to performance-related measures.
“The funding proposed for public higher education in the Governor’s May Revise is a critical investment in the future of California,” said CSU Chancellor Timothy P. White. “We look forward to working with the Governor and legislature to invest these educational resources while ensuring the accountability of our universities and the success of our students in a way that upholds the mission of the California State University.” (more…)
Budget also reinstates $125 million from cuts to last fiscal year
(January 10, 2013) — Governor Brown today released his 2013-2014 state budget proposal that signals a renewed investment in higher education with the addition of $125.1 million in state funding for the California State University. The Governor’s budget also reinstates $125 million that was cut from last year’s budget and was due to be reimbursed in this year’s budget following the successful passage of Proposition 30. (more…)
(November 14, 2012) — The California State University Board of Trustees today approved its 2013-14 budget request of the Governor and the legislature, which seeks to balance the system’s continued unmet needs with the state’s fiscal challenges. CSU is requesting a total of $371.9 million over its current baseline budget that includes state funds, tuition and systemwide fees. The plan includes revenue for enrollment growth, compensation, as well as maintenance of facilities.
System avoids $250 million additional cut, but funding still down $1 billion
(November 7, 2012) — The California State University will avoid a $250 million mid-year budget cut after voters’ approval of Proposition 30, and will start the process of rescinding the $249 per semester tuition fee increase already in place. With the passage of Proposition 30, CSU’s budget will essentially remain flat for the remainder of this fiscal year, but state funding is still approximately $1 billion less than several years ago.
