Operating revenue by source, Universitywide and UC campuses, 2000-10 to 2009-10
In the past 10 years, state educational appropriations have decreased from 24 percent of UC revenue to 13 percent. This reflects both a decline in state support (from $3.7 billion to $2.8 billion inflation-adjusted) and an increase in other revenues, especially from medical centers, contracts and grants, and student tuition and fees.
The University's operating budget was over $20 billion in 2009-10. This represents funding for core mission activities - teaching, research and public service - as well as for a wide range of other activities, including hospitals, continuing education, student housing and dining services, and faculty and graduate student research funded by contracts and grants.
Between 2000-01 and 2009-10, state educational appropriations fell by almost $1 billion, while total student enrollment grew by 50,000 (see indicator 1.1).
Private gift funding has remained relatively stable with contributions between 3 percent and 4 percent of the University's revenues.
Campuses rely in different proportion on revenues from various sources, as shown on the following page. The greatest difference exists between campuses with medical centers and those without.
