The State Higher Education Finance (SHEF) report is produced annually by the State Higher Education Executive Officers (SHEEO) to help policymakers and educators address broad public policy questions with respect to public financing of higher education. These questions include:
- What levels of state funding to colleges and universities are necessary to maintain the economic and social well-being of the American people?
- What tuition levels are appropriate given the costs of higher education, its benefits to individuals, and the desirability of encouraging participation?
- What student financial assistance is necessary to provide meaningful educational opportunities to students from low- and moderate-income families?
- How might colleges and universities use available resources to increase productivity without impairing the quality of services to students?
