Results from the annual Grapevine survey of state support for higher education, conducted by the Center for the Study of Education Policy at Illinois State University and the State Higher Education Executive Officers, show a slight improvement in funding levels for FY 2018-19.
In general, states spent 3.7 percent more in support of higher education in FY 2018-19 than FY 2017-18, which continues a five-year upward trend.
Nearly 70 percent of the growth can be attributed to the gains in these nine large states: California, Colorado, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, and Washington.
Meanwhile, funding went down in five states: Alaska, Kentucky, Minnesota, Ohio, and South Carolina.
