Facing Revenue Shortfall, California to Cut Higher Education Again

California’s public colleges and universities will have to absorb hundreds of millions of dollars of midyear budget cuts because state revenue has fallen short of expectations, Gov. Edmund G. Brown Jr. announced on Tuesday. The University of California and California State University systems will each be allocated new cuts of $100-million, as college leaders have long expected. Community colleges, which will take a $102-million hit, will raise fees next year from $36 to $46 per unit.
