You will choose a state in the U.S. (USE GEORGIA) and examine the funding of higher education institutions. Acting as the vice-president, you will write a memo to a new trustee of the school and provide an overview of how the state provides funding to the institution.
As part of your memo, be sure to include:
- State background information (e.g., demographics, governing body, politics, economy, public/private education system)
- Trends in higher education finance (e.g., current enrollment, tuition, and fees at public/private institutions; state appropriations, budget issues, aid for students, tax effort, income per capita)
- Issues that impact higher education financing in the state (e.g., new initiatives, new laws/taxes, changes in leadership)
