2009/10 Support Budget II

Additional Budget Challenges, $153.5 Million

The Compact primarily supports CSU general operations and enrollment growth, which 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 $153.5 million in funding “above Compact” to support initiatives that are a priority for the university in the 2009/10 fiscal year.
