"First, states should shift to a not-for-profit model of governing boards, where members are chosen outside of political channels. This move would provide public research universities with a critical layer of insulation from political distortion.

Second, more states should adopt arrangements that provide universities with greater latitude in areas such as procurement and budgeting, in exchange for a commitment to reach certain benchmarks.

Third, states should move to multiyear guarantees of funding, to allow universities to more predictably engage in strategic planning. California, for example, has experimented with this approach.

Finally, states might explore using a bond offering to shift public universities from an unreliable annual appropriation to a self-sustaining endowment. Although not a solution for every public university, such a mechanism could offer certain institutions greater control over their budgetary future; Oregon considered such a proposal several years ago."
