LEGISLATIVE COUNSEL'S DIGEST


AB 813, as amended, Eggman. Postsecondary education: state goals for postsecondary education system. California State University: campuses.

Existing

(1) Existing law establishes the University of California, under the administration of the Regents of the University of California, the California State University, under the administration of the Trustees of the California State University, the California Community Colleges, under the administration of the Board of Governors of the California Community Colleges, independent institutions of higher education, and private postsecondary educational institutions University, as one of the segments of public postsecondary education in this state. A provision of existing law specifies 25 institutions of higher education that are included in the California State University.
This bill would add a Stockton campus to these institutions of higher education that are included in the California State University.
(2) Existing law specifies that the Contra Costa, Redwood City, and Ventura campuses of the California State University may commence construction only upon resolution of the trustees, approved by the California Postsecondary Education Commission.
This bill would add a Stockton campus to these campuses for which construction may only commence upon resolution of the trustees and approval of the California Postsecondary Education Commission.
(3) Certain campuses of the California State University operate satellite campuses, also known as off-campus centers, designed to serve students who are not able to commute to a main campus of the university or who wish to develop a particular skill or trade for which instruction is offered at the satellite campus.
This bill would require a campus of the California State University that operates a satellite campus to annually provide the Legislature with a satellite campus report that includes, but is not necessarily limited to, an updated sustainability plan, financial data, and pertinent historical data and enrollment projections. The bill would also prohibit an individual campus of the California State University that operates a satellite campus from disproportionately cutting funding from the satellite campus in order to support the main campus.

This bill would make a nonsubstantive change in a provision relating to the state goals for the postsecondary education system.
