The UC Budget in the 2014-15 California Governor’s Budget

This is an accounting of the UC Budget in the May 13, 2014 revision of the 2014-15 California Governor’s Budget.  I don’t use rounding off.

The Total California Budget for 2014-15 is $156.152 billion.

The State Budget for Higher Education is $12.874 billion, or 8.2% of the state total.  The total higher education budget including federal support is $46.262 billion.  So the state contribution to the total higher education budget is 28%.

The State Budget for the University of California is $3.016 billion.  The total UC budget is $26.185 billion.  The state contribution to UC is 11.5% of the total.  The state also provides $1.482 billion in the Student Aid Commission.  There are 89,790 positions in the UC system.

In the UC system total budget, Instruction accounts for $5.246 billion.  This is broken down into the General Campus of $2.978 billion with 15,799 positions, and $1.991 billion in the Health Sciences with 8,267 positions.  Student Financial Aid is $1.389 billion of the total UC budget.  Research has $0.777 billion, with 5,303 positions.

Extramural Programs of the UC total $5.180 billion.  Of this, Research is $3.376 billion, and Student Financial Aid is $0.616 billion.  The extramural programs of $5.2 billion of outside money, compared to the state UC budget of $3 billion shows that the UC brings in money to the state.

The UC also run the Lawrence Berkeley National Lab for an income of $0.764 billion.
