The May Revision issued today (May 12) makes small adjustments to the governor’s January state budget proposal for the University of California. The principal changes are a proposed augmentation of $1 million, on a one-time basis in 2006-07, for faculty recruitment and start-up costs supporting an expansion of undergraduate and graduate nursing programs; and a $3.8 million reduction in the 2005-06 budget related to final enrollment levels.
Details are at www.ebudget.ca.gov/Revised/BudgetSummary/HED/8874145.html . A summary of the governor’s full January budget proposal for UC, which remains in place except for the changes in the May Revision, is at www.universityofcalifornia.edu/news/2006/jan10.html .
