“This budget officially begins the state’s reinvestment in higher education and the California State University. This wise choice by the Governor and legislature will further aid California’s economic recovery. While this is an important step in the right direction, additional efforts are still needed to help meet the unprecedented demand to attend a California State University campus. We continue to work with our elected officials and all stakeholders on further restoration of access and increases in student success. We look forward to continued engagement on appropriate and meaningful ways to measure and be accountable for this critical work.”
(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.
(March 19, 2013) – At its regular meeting held today, the California State University Board of Trustees discussed the balance of priorities for the $125.1 million increase proposed by the Governor for the 2013-2014 fiscal year. The budget plan presented to the board focuses on three major areas – student access and success, faculty and staff compensation and mandatory costs.
“After struggling through one of the toughest times in CSU history, the system is now in a position to address some of its critical needs,” said Robert Turnage, assistant vice chancellor for budget. “Putting students first, the CSU’s budget plan strikes a balance among the many legitimate claims for available resources.”
