2008/09 Support Budget


Teacher and student discussing coursework at a deskThe Compact primarily supports CSU general operations and enrollment growth. This allows the CSU to fund mandatory costs, compensation, enrollment growth, financial aid, and long-term need. However, the Compact allows additional funding to support high-priority needs of the university and the state. The governor and the legislature have provided “above Compact” funding for initiatives, including the expansion of CSU nursing programs and the production of more K-12 math and science teachers. The CSU currently recognizes $155.2 million in funding “above Compact” that will support initiatives that are a priority for the university in the 2008/09 fiscal year.

The additional funding requested in the 2008/09 budget, targets seven areas:
