Oregon’s public universities will get state funds on the basis of student outcomes rather than enrollment, a state higher-education panel has decided.
The Statesman Journal, in Salem, Ore., reports that in a new approach, money from the Public University Support Fund will be allocated according to rates of student access and completion, with an emphasis on underrepresented populations.
Performance-based funding has gained favor among many state lawmakers in recent years. In Oregon, the new model is to be put fully into effect over the next four years.
