Legislative committee adopts new higher education funding formula
Proposal shifts money to Southern Nevada campuses; committee recommends implementing plan immediately
After making some revisions, a Legislative committee agreed to adopt a funding formula proposed by the Nevada System of Higher Education that will shift $13.2 million a year to Southern Nevada campuses. On Wednesday, the committee adjusted some of the weights given to classes that will help determine funding levels, based on the recommendations from its consultant, SRI International. Those recommendations gave greater weight to classes such as upper level math and science classes. But in general, the committee embraced the formula implemented by the Board of Regents last Friday that was based on a formula used by the higher education system, which hired its own consultant to help it with its work.
