New SHEEO Report: State Approaches to Base Funding for Public Colleges and Universities

In collaboration with NCHEMS, SHEEO released a report describing and classifying the approach each state takes to funding base operations at public colleges and universities. With sector-level data, state examples, and estimations of the proportion of state funding allocated through each approach, this report seeks to fill in gaps in our collective understanding of how states funding higher education. It is our hope that the data shared in this report will lead to additional research, consideration, and evaluation of base plus, institutional requests, input-driven formula funding, and special purpose funding across the states.
