Abstract

This issue brief describes how state budget cuts to California State University system are affecting gerontological education – in the form of fewer classes, fewer faculty and less administrative support for those faculty.

The brief details the impact of FY2009-10 budget cuts to the 23 campuses of the CSU system and the subsequent loss of $584 million in state funding, resulting in salary and hiring freezes for faculty and staff, furloughs and restrictions on student enrollment.

The California state universities train the largest number of social workers, psychologists, program managers, policy analysts, nurses, and others who will staff the positions that current and future older adults rely upon. The authors, including Center Associate Director Steven P. Wallace, gathered information from 61 faculty who teach gerontology courses throughout the CSU system to document how those cuts impact courses about older adults in higher education.
