A senior administration official says State University of New York Chancellor Nancy Zimpher will announce plans to make campuses compete for some state aid as a way to provide an incentive for faster improvements, the Associated Press reports.
The official who spoke on the condition of anonymity says Zimpher's "state of SUNY'' address on Wednesday will reveal the incentive plan. The official required anonymity because the plan hadn't yet been made public.
Campuses would be able to compete for a share of state aid based on their performance in a few select priorities.
For example, campuses that excel in research or graduation rates could land more aid in those areas.
Other campuses would lose aid. The priorities and amount of aid hasn't yet been decided.
