Funding for all public higher education institutions

Missouri ranks in the bottom 10 of all states for higher education funding, and we have decreased nearly 10 percent in funding since 2009. Without additional performance funding, the burden of higher education costs are increasingly shifted to students.

Colleges receive funding when they demonstrate improvement according to five different performance measures. A sixth measure pertaining to job placement is being developed.
