"California higher education leaders have high hopes for Newsom's spending plans
More funding for university systems and expansion of free community college tuition expected."
..."Newsom pledged that his first budget would include “a significant boost” in spending for CSU and UC and he would oppose any tuition increases. “It has been nothing less than devastating to watch the state’s disinvestment from public higher education, and with it, stripping a generation of Californians of an opportunity those before them enjoyed,” he wrote at the time"...
"Now the official wish lists facing Newsom are costly.
California’s community college system is requesting $488 million in extra funding from the state for the 2019-2020 budget year, aimed in part to improve graduation and transfer rates. The CSU Board of Trustees wants an increase of $456 million in its 2019-20 budget, including funds to enroll 18,000 additional California residents. Similarly, UC regents are seeking a $376 million increase in state general revenue funding, which would help add 2,500 undergraduates, among other projects."...
- but there's no official affirmative comment, and also no push back on such expectations, yet.
