The CFA Research program provides support to many aspects of CFA’s work. The research webpages provide materials regarding employment and demographic trends, trends in executive and management bloat, the CSU budget and student fees, and more.
Information summarized in tables and graphs is organized as shown below. Follow these links for data and reports about these topics.

CFA receives and summarizes data annually on management growth on the 23 campuses and the Chancellor’s Office. In the California State University, only the 23 campus presidents and a handful of top administrators at the Chancellor’s Office are considered Executives. The remainder of the administrators and managers are known as “MPPs” – management personnel.
CFA researches and publishes special reports and white papers of interest to the CSU and public higher education, more generally. On occasion, CFA has also contracted with other researchers to produce reports that will help us do our work. Read and review these recent reports here.
Find summaries and analyses of the CSU budget and finances on this page. We post reports and data about the CSU budget and share links where additional information is published by the CSU administration and the government.
CSU Audited Financial Statements
While budgets show the way an institution or organization plans to spend its resources, an analysis of an institution’s actual expenditures is a better way to learn about priorities. It is sometimes more difficult to obtain spending data than budget data, but a university’s audited financial statements provide expenditure data.
CFA prepares reports, flyers, fact sheets, and other materials that can fall under various categories. On this page, find copies of presentations, reports, and other materials that contain information that chapter leaders may need.
