State Higher Education Finance FY 2010

By the State Higher Education Executive Officers

Financing higher education requires political leaders, policymakers, and educators to address broad public policy questions, including:

• What levels of state funding to colleges and universities are necessary to maintain the economic and social well‐being of the American people?

• What tuition levels are appropriate given the costs of higher education, its benefits to individuals, and the desirability of encouraging participation and increasing completion?

• What student financial assistance is necessary to provide meaningful educational opportunities to students from low‐ and moderate‐income families?

• How might colleges and universities use available resources to increase productivity without impairing the quality of services to students?

The State Higher Education Finance (SHEF) report is produced annually by the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) to broaden understanding of the context and consequences of multiple decisions made every year in each of these areas. No single report can provide definitive answers to such broad and fundamental questions of public policy, but the SHEF report provides information to help inform such decisions.
