Financing Public Higher Education: The Evolution of State Funding

November 2, 2015

Abstract

In this report, we examine differences across states in funding, enrollment, and pricing changes over time. College access and affordability are national issues, but students residing in different states have very different opportunities. These opportunities have evolved differently in recent years, depending on policy priorities as well as on state economies.
