Postsecondary Pathways | Exploring State Funding for Higher Education in Fiscal Year 2021
As we entered 2022, most states had not recovered from prior recessionary cuts in state funding and now face declines in their other revenue sources. As a result, postsecondary institutions may be in a more precarious financial situation than at any other time in recent history. Amid this uncertainty, the SHEF report offers a comprehensive look at where states stood as they weathered the COVID-19 pandemic and economic recession. This webinar explores the key findings of the 2022 SHEF report, best practices that have emerged, and what the future of higher education funding holds.
