 Presidential Selection and Compensation

  • CSU Board of Trustees will review the Special Committee on Presidential Selection and Compensation’s recommendations to the CSU presidential compensation policy.
  • The committee will also review a new comparator list of public institutions as part of the recommendation.

arrow 2012-13 CSU Support Budget

  • The Committee on Finance will update the CSU Board of Trustees on Governor Brown’s 2012-13 budget proposal.
  • Assuming the Governor’s proposed tax initiative passes in November, the CSU budget will maintain the current level of state support. If the measure is not approved by voters, the Governor's budget proposal includes a series of trigger cuts that would go into effect, including an additional $200 million cut to the CSU. If imposed, this cut would reduce the CSU’s level of state support to $1.8 billion, the lowest level of state funding since 1996-97.

arrow Graduation Initiative, SB 1440 and Enrollment Updates

  • The Committee on Educational Policy will update the Board of Trustees on the progress of the Graduation Initiative and SB 1440: Student Transfer Achievement Reform Act.
  • CSU Trustees will review enrollment assumptions for 2012-13, including considering maintaining full-time student enrollment at the 2011-12 target.

arrow 2010-11 Annual Report on Philanthropic Support to the CSU

  • The Board will be presented with the 2010-11 annual gift report on philanthropic support to the CSU.
  • In 2010-11, the CSU received over $344 million in gift commitments, which has been invested to improve pathways to degrees, enhance learning experiences and prepare more graduates for careers in high-demand fields.
