The American Association of State Colleges and Universities (AASCU) is pleased to present the next installment in its State Outlook
series. This briefing discusses economic and state policy issues
affecting public higher education at the start of the new fiscal year.
The report discusses economic and state revenue conditions and forecasts
that present implications for public higher education funding. The
first composite sketch of state funding for public universities in the
new fiscal year is provided, the results of which illustrate that most
states have begun the process of reinvesting in public higher education
in the aftermath of the Great Recession.
The report provides a summary of highlights from states’ 2013
legislative sessions involving higher education. Integrated throughout
the report are links to an array of information-rich resources.
