Higher education panel to consider strategic plan

DENVER — The Colorado Commission on Higher Education will consider a strategic plan its hopes will help save Colorado’s state-funded colleges and universities.

Strategic planning committee co-chairman Jim Lyons says options that may be considered include raising taxes, providing more state funding, charging higher fees for graduate programs and consolidation of programs.

The commission is expected to review the recommendations today, but they have until Dec. 15 to submit a master plan.

The subcommittees recommended that state funding be increased from $550 million to $1 billion to avoid losing ground and close a $476 million inflation gap.
