State Higher Education Executive Officers
The State Higher Education Finance (SHEF) report is a tool to help policy makers and educators address broad public policy questions. SHEF seeks to inform policy deliberations with information and perspective on financial issues and national trends. The report also provides three technical essays that discuss: a) the Higher Education Cost Adjustment (HECA) used by SHEF to estimate the effects of inflation on higher education; b) SHEF's analytical adjustments for interstate differences in the cost of living and the proportion of enrollments among types of institution; and c) the differences between various sources of information on state higher education finance. Appendices to the study provide data on individual states and other supporting information. Contains a number of tables, graphics, and colorful, user friendly pie charts.
