The California Postsecondary Education Commission has adopted the following six priorities for the State budget for higher education during fiscal year 1990-91:

  1. Supporting full funding of the base budgets and enrollment growth in California's public universities and colleges
  2. Maintaining the existing level of State General Fund support for the California Community Colleges
  3. Implementing the private postsecondary education reforms of Senate Bill 190 (Morgan)
  4. Implementing the Commission's recommendations regarding space and utilization standards
  5. Funding the needs of adult education
  6. Expanding student financial assistance
The Commission has also identified these three additional priorities if funds permit:

  1. Supporting the implementation of community college reforms contained in Assembly Bill 1725
  2. Enhancing the capacity of the community colleges for long-range planning
  3. Supporting intersegmental efforts
These priorities are based on existing Commission policy. The recommended staff actions involve working with the Legislature, the Department of Finance, and the Legislative Analyst's Office to secure adequate funding for all six priority areas.

The Commission approved this report at its meeting on January 22, 1990, on recommendation of its Administration and Liaison Committee.
