LOS ANGELES (AP) — California State University plans to spend the projected $125.1 million in extra state funding for the 2013-14 academic year to expand enrollment and online courses, boost employee salaries and pay for increased energy and health benefit costs.
Assistant Vice Chancellor Robert Turnage on Monday outlined the university system’s budget that will be presented to the board of trustees on Tuesday.
The extra funds were gained through voter approval of Proposition 30 in November.
Turnage says $38.9 million is planned to add more instructors and support staff to admit nearly 6,000 more students, while $38 million will pay for average 1.2 percent raises to employees with the exception of senior administrators.
The biggest slice of the funding — $48.2 million — will pay for increased costs for health benefits and energy.
