Previous Reports

For sixteen years, the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO) has produced the annual State Higher Education Finance (SHEF) report to broaden understanding and enable analysis of state-level and national funding and enrollment trends over time. The SHEF report provides the earliest possible review of state funding for higher education fo the most recently completed fiscal year.

More than just a report, SHEF is a core member service for our state executive officers and their staffs. The report has become the go-to resource for tracking funding trends over time and is used by policymakers, researchers and the media. SHEF also includes a robust data set for fiscal year 1980-2018 with detailed data on state and local funding, tuition revenue and enrollment, with interactive data visualization materials.
