    and 2013 states cut appropriation support per FTE student in the median public research university by more than 26 percent overall support per FTE student at the median public institution was cut by more than 20 percent The decline in support in part reflects difficult choices states have made in response to mandatory spending programs like Medicaid rising pension contributions and a desire to preserve K 12 education 3 Today public research universities still rely on state appropriations for approximately 51 percent of their educational revenue although the percentage fluctuates widely by institution UCLA for example receives only 7 percent of its funding from the state For most public institutions further cuts could be devastating In this climate the American Academy of Arts Sciences created the Lincoln Project Excellence and Access in Public Higher Education to study the importance of public research universities analyze economic trends affecting their operations and recommend new strategies to sustain these critical institutions In its first publication Public Research Universities Why They Matter the Lincoln Project demonstrated the many ways in which public research universities are a vital public good 4 This publication examines state financing of higher education describes the challenges that state governments face and assesses the prospects for greater state support in the future ENDNOTES 1 National Association of State Budget Officers State Expenditure Report Examining Fiscal 2012 2014 State Spending Washington D C National Association of State Budget Officers 2015 These numbers are for general fund spending rather than spending from all funds In many states higher education spending in other funds includes spending by institutions from tuition revenue and other sources not derived from states own resources and thus does not measure state effort to fund higher education The data in for 2014 are estimates collected before final fiscal reports

    and fundraising and therefore possess a perceived capacity to absorb cuts 2 Higher education institutions have a greater capacity to cut or slow the growth of employee pay in bad times or raise it in good times because they are not bound by statewide pay scales and 3 Higher education institutions can vary program elements such as course offerings and class sizes and therefore associated spending in ways that may be difficult for state agencies Since public higher education is perceived as a relatively flexible budget item a rarity among the proliferating mandatory spending programs that dominate state budgets each institution contends separately with unpredictable funding patterns a volatility that has a profound impact on their operations This volatility complicates long term planning and may reduce their attractiveness as employers since professors and other staff face greater uncertainty about their job security and long term career prospects And the inability to count on state funding leads to tuition increases at the very times when those increases are most difficult for students and their families to bear Between 2008 and 2014 published public higher education tuition increased by 28 percent after adjusting for inflation Tuition increased by more than 20 percent in twenty nine states more than 40 percent in ten states and more than 60 percent in six states Tuition in Arizona rose by 81 percent per student after adjusting for inflation 5 Source State Higher Education Executive Officers SHEEO Association SHEF FY 2014 State Higher Education Finance Boulder Colo State Higher Education Executive Officers Association 2015 State Support for Higher Education Both Public and Private Institutions Outside of Normal Budgetary Appropriations State Support for Higher Education Both Public and Private Institutions Outside of Normal Budgetary Appropriations Subsidized loans required to be repaid to the state Tax systems IRS section 529 plans that allow tax advantaged savings for higher education 7 Additional tax benefits for education including tuition tax credits tuition deductions deductions for interest on student loans and exclusion of scholarship income from state personal income tax calculations There is no comprehensive tally for the cost of these loans and tax expenditures but it is likely to be at least several billion dollars annually based on review of selected state tax expenditure reports A number of factors drive the variation in state spending on higher education see Figure 3 Economic and demographic variables such as per capita income the size of the college age population relative to the total population with a relatively greater college age population associated with lower spending per student and the proportion of students attending college out of state Fiscal variables such as pressures to spend in other areas particularly K 12 education and Medicaid and Local institutional factors such as the political parties of governors and legislative majorities the demographic compositions of state legislatures and tax and expenditure limits 6 In this report we focus primarily on spending per FTE student as an important measure of the resources available per student and of the

    in many states even with a turnaround in the level of state funding the situation has gotten worse due to corresponding tuition increase freezes or caps In states where tuition is constrained universities are experiencing a net loss even when states do increase funding Despite modest increases in 2013 and 2014 state support for public higher education per full time equivalent student remains nearly 30 percent below spending in 2000 after adjusting for inflation using the State Higher Education Finance cost adjustment Source State Higher Education Executive Officers SHEEO Association SHEF FY 2014 State Higher Education Finance Boulder Colo State Higher Education Executive Officers Association 2015 As a result of sustained cuts and governmental spending pressures elsewhere higher education has declined as a share of state budgets While states once spent more on higher education than Medicaid higher education has been overtaken and the gap is widening The higher education share of general fund spending fell from 14 6 percent in 1990 to 9 4 percent in 2014 while the Medicaid share more than doubled from 9 5 percent to 19 1 percent States now spend more than twice as much on Medicaid as they do on higher education Higher education has fallen as a share of state budgets while Medicaid has risen Source National Association of State Budget Officers State Expenditure Report various years 1990 2014 Washington D C National Association of State Budget Officers 1991 2015 http www nasbo org publications data state expenditure report archives Higher education has suffered relative to other priorities too particularly elementary and secondary education and corrections According to one recent analysis eleven states spent more of their general funds on corrections than on higher education in 2013 And some of the states with the biggest education cuts in recent years also have
