Meera Hatangadi, News ReporterSeptember 28, 2022The way community colleges are funded may be revamped to make student success outcomes play a bigger part in determining fund allocation, according to a draft released at the Sept. 12 commission meeting for the Texas Commission on Community College Finance.  Currently, community college funding is proportionally allocated between colleges based on their individual enrollment or seat time. With the new proposal, however, an outcomes-based funding model would determine how much funding each college receives.
