Southern Regional Education Board, Atlanta, GA.
Profiles of the 14 states of the Southern Regional Education Board (SREB) provide information on the structure of these states for public postsecondary education and budgeting. For each state, the following areas are discussed: state-level coordinating and/or governing agency, institutional governing boards, state board for vocational education, budgeting process, budget preparation by the state board/commission, budget requests by colleges and universities, budget recommendations of the state board/commission, the governor's budget, legislative hearings, and appropriations bill. A chart, which provides a regional overview of higher education coordination and budgeting, provides information for each state on: the body that sets tuition; the type of higher education agency (coordinating only, governing/coordinating); responsibility for coordination (public senior, public junior, public vocational/technical); responsibility for budgeting for two or four-year colleges (recommends institutional budgets, recommends systemwide budget, allocates funds to institutions); and responsibility for program review for existing and new programs. The 14 SREB states are: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia; and West Virginia. (SW)
