About the Program

As concerns have grown about access to and affordability of California’s higher education system, understanding costs has become more critical than ever. How are institutions—and students—faring? Can performance budgeting improve efficiency and outcomes? PPIC researcher Hans Johnson will provide an overview of these issues, and a panel of experts will discuss the future of higher education finance in California.

This research was supported with funding from the California Postsecondary Education Commission Foundation and the Donald Bren Foundation.
