How have the sources of the University of California's (UC) funding changed over time, and how has the structure of the funding adapted to dropping state support? Do the proportions of different sources vary across the ten campuses of the system? These graphs demonstrate that the budgets of the campuses have been growing rapidly despite dropping state support and that revenue from sales, especially of medical services, have increased even more.
Instructions: Select a specific campus for which to view expenditures in dollars and percentages using either the map or the list. The amounts can then be adjusted for inflation or growing student population using the drop down menus at the bottom.
*To show amounts in constant 2010 dollars. This controls for the decrease in purchasing power caused by inflation.
** To show amounts holding the student population constant for each campus (at 2010 levels). This shows whether the changes in funding keep up with student population growth.
***Note that these expenditures are not exhaustive in scope and thus will not add up to the total expenditures.
(1) Funding by sources was taken from consolidated Schedule A statements available at http://www.ucop.edu/corpacct/finschd/
(2) Student population per campus was obtained from "Statistical Summary of Students and Staff" at http://www.ucop.edu/ucophome/uwnews/stat/
(3) CPI data was taken from the California Department of Finance website (calendar year averages) available at
