How Colleges Are Coping, 1995.
How Colleges Are Coping, n18-21 Jan-Sep 1995
Based on news accounts, correspondence, conference presentations, and interviews, this collection of quarterly reports provides regular updates on actions taken by California's colleges to cope with difficult economic times. These four reports were produced in January, March, May, and September of 1995 and review the effects of and responses to budgetary shortfalls in the California Community Colleges (CCC), the California State University (CSU), the University of California (UC), private colleges in California, and selected institutions in other states. Each report contains general comments on trends in the CCC, CSU, and UC systems; discussions of actions taken at specific campuses; and a review of notable occurrences at the state and national levels. Highlights of the 1995 reports include the following: (1) in 1995, the CCC had a maintenance fund of only $8.6 million to cover $95 million worth of facilities requests; (2) 15 CCC districts joined a statewide cash management program to meet cash flow needs through pooled borrowing; (3) the 20 CSU campuses raised $150.4 million from alumni, parents, corporations, and foundations in 1993-94, a 70% increase from 1989-90; and (4) the UC Board of Regents approved a $145 million dollar budget increase to avert further student fee increases, hire 120 new faculty, and increase faculty salaries by 5%.
