2008/09 CSU Support Budget

2008/09 Budgetary Challenges

Ongoing Budget Augmentations

The CSU’s annual support budget increase is primarily dedicated to serving new students and funding annual cost increases included in the Higher Education Compact. The Compact, however, does not provide funding for new and expanded initiatives to address pressing state needs and priorities neglected during years when state resources were insufficient to fully address education program requirements. The “above Compact” funding requested in the 2008/09 CSU Support Budget addresses the following state needs and priorities:

2008/09 ONGOING AND PERMANENT BUDGET AUGMENTATION REQUESTS
Program/Need Request ($Millions)
Additional 1 Percent Student Enrollment Growth (3,429 FTES) $27.5
Clinical Nursing Support   $7.8
Teaching Performance Assessment $10.0
Student Services for Success and Authentic Access $24.6
One Percent Compensation $30.4
Applied Research $12.0
First-Year Implementation for Increasing Ratio of Tenured Faculty $42.9
  $155.2
