    • College Preparation

    • Affordability

    • College Completion

    • Economic Development

Evolution of che funding recommendations

Evolution of CHE Funding Recommendations


Capital projects

Capital Projects

  • Requested by institutions with no restrictions

  • Only exception is a formula to generate R&R appropriations

  • CHE makes capital project recommendations

  • Capital projects may be:

    • State funded, requires General Assembly authorization

    • Non-state funded, sometimes requires General Assembly authorization

    • Cash funded

    • Authorized to issue debt – debt may or may not be repaid by the state

  • Includes projects:

    • New construction

    • Repair or renovation

    • Infrastructure


Historical cap projects requests che recommendations and as passed

Historical Cap Projects requests, CHE recommendations and ASPassed

Note: GA approvals have exceeded CHE recommendations by $930M


Che review of capital projects

CHE Review of Capital projects

  • Certain capital projects require state review and approval

  • CHE REVIEWS and makes recommendations on capital projects that have been requested by the institutions

  • Statutory review depends on many things, including:

    • Type of project

    • Total cost of the project

    • Source of project funding

  • After CHE recommendation, projects move to State Budget Committee, State Budget Agency, Indiana Finance Authority and Governor


Student financial aid

Student financial aid

  • A very complex, but important issue to affordability

  • Financial aid comes from many sources, but chiefly:

    • Federal government

    • State appropriations (SSACI)

    • Institutional aid

    • Private foundations/owners/employers

  • Financial Aid study jointly undertaken by CHE and SSACI to be presented in September to State Budget Committee

    • Aligning financial aid policy with state higher policy: particularly college completion

    • Recognizing the “new normal” student – majority of financial aid applicants are “non-traditional students with different types of needs and require a new approach to financial aid policy


The general assembly makes final determination

The General Assembly makes final determination

  • CHE makes recommendations

  • The Trustees by statute have virtually all of the decision making power and responsibility for institutional budgets and administration

  • The General Assembly is always free to accept, modify or reject the CHE recommendations

  • CHE must work with institutional staff, the legislature, other parts of state government and other stakeholders

  • CHE recommendations are almost never adopted to the dollar, but the General Assembly has always passed higher education budgets based on Commission recommended policies
