View Full Publication
Fiscal Profile focuses on statistical data about the financing of California public postsecondary education. It is the California Postsecondary Education Commission's first step in developing a comprehensive fiscal data base, comparable to its data base on student characteristics, that can be used in comparative analyses of higher education finance and to answer the many questions on this subject that Commission staff receive.

The report from two earlier Commission documents: (1) its "Fiscal Abstract" of June 1989, and (2) its staff report, "Financing California Public Higher Education: State Funding in Context" of April 1990.

The profiles begin with a comprehensive analysis of changes in the overall spending patterns of State General Fund dollars for State services over the past quarter century. Then it shifts to comparisons of ratios of per-student support among the University of California, the California State University, and the California Community Colleges. Therefore, the main body of the report consists of displays of fiscal data on the operations and capital budgets of the three public segments, California's student financial aid programs, public K-12 education, Hastings College of the Law, the California Maritime Academy, and the independent sector of California postsecondary education.

The Administration and Liaison Committee of the Commission discussed this report at its meeting on October 29, 1990.
