The State Higher Education Finance (SHEF) report is produced annually by the State Higher Education Executive Officers Association (SHEEO) to broaden understanding of the context and consequences of public policy decisions in each state that contribute to public higher education funding levels and funding distributions across states and nationally. SHEF provides the earliest possible review of state and local support, tuition revenue, and enrollment trends for the most recently completed fiscal year.
The 2020 @SHEEOEd #SHEF report highlights long-term changes in #HigherEd finance, finding that general operating funding to public institutions has declined almost 20% per FTE since 2001. Learn more at http://bit.ly/shef20.
.@SHEEOed states have made great strides in restoring funding for public #HigherEd. With a 2.9% increase, 2020 marks the eighth straight year of per-FTE increases in education appropriations. But, many states remain near historically low funding levels. http://bit.ly/shef20
The 2020 @SHEEOEd #SHEF report finds that states have only recovered about three-quarters (74.3%) of the total decline in higher education appropriations per FTE seen during the Great Recession. Explore more at http://bit.ly/shef20.
To truly understand trends in #HigherEd finance, it’s important to look at multiple measures of state funding. Check out the new @SHEEOed State Effort report for a look at states’ ability and willingness to fund higher ed. https://bit.ly/shef-state-effort
In the #SHEFStateEffort report, @SHEEOed finds that despite years of recovery in higher ed funding and record high tax revenues, state effort to fund #HigherEd has not come close to pre-recession levels and has remained stagnant in recent years. https://bit.ly/shef-state-effort
While recent state investments in #HigherEd are encouraging, per-student funding has never been so low at the start of a recession. The @SHEEOEd #SHEF report finds that education appropriations per FTE remain 6% and 14.6% below 2008 and 2001 levels. http://bit.ly/shef20
This year’s @SHEEOEd State Higher Education Finance (#SHEF) report provides new sector-level data on state and local funding for public #HigherEd, highlighting differences in funding across sectors. http://bit.ly/shef20
There has been a lot of concern over enrollment declines due to #COVID19, and these declines are accelerating a long-term trend: FTE enrollment has declined for nine straight years. Read more in the @SHEEOed #SHEF report at http://bit.ly/shef20.
Since 2001, state financial aid to public institutions has increased 62.6% per FTE, to $830 in 2020. State aid increased 7% in the last year alone. Explore more state financial aid data in this year’s @SHEEOEd #SHEF report. http://bit.ly/shef20
The findings from SHEEO’s comprehensive new paper, titled Investigating the Impacts of State Higher Education Appropriations and Financial Aid, are clear: state funding to both institutions and student financial aid has clear and direct impacts on student enrollment patterns, retention and completion rates, and post-college success.
