The past few state budgets have come with new strings attached for higher-education institutions. Lawmakers want state funding to favor schools that show the best results, rather than simply the ones with the most students. Under “performance-based funding,” colleges and universities get a bigger piece of the funding pie when more students graduate with degrees or, in the case of community colleges, complete more courses and earn more certificates and two-year degrees.
