When California Eliminated Its Higher-Ed Commission, Little Was Lost, Speaker Says

The Chronicle of Higher Education
August 5th, 2015

Ken O’Donnell, an administrator in the California State University system, says life without a statewide coordinating board "ain’t that bad."
But that doesn’t mean some things aren’t lost without such an agency, he says. And it doesn’t mean there won’t be a role for a coordinating group in the future.
Mr. O’Donnell, senior director of student engagement and academic initiatives and partnerships, spoke here on Tuesday at a meeting of the State Higher Education Executive Officers. He delivered a frank assessment of the California Postsecondary Education Commission, which was eliminated by Gov. Jerry Brown in 2011, as an easy way to cut $2 million from a state budget reeling from the impact of the recession.
