          *********** ANALYSIS ADDENDUM - SUSPENSE FILE ***********
             The following information is revised to reflect amendments 
                     adopted by the committee on August 11, 2016






          Bill  
          Summary:  This bill requires the California Community Colleges  
          (CCC) Board of Governors (BOG), the California State University  
          (CSU) Trustees, the governing body of each private postsecondary  
          educational institution in the state and encourages each  
          University of California (UC) campus, to generate a report every  
          two years, as specified, pertaining campus climate.  


          Fiscal  
          Impact:  
           Likely minor costs to the CCC and the CSU to implement this  
            bill.

           One-time cost pressure to UC of up to $100,000 update the  
            campus climate reporting portal to collect data and allow for  
            data analysis to the extent it chooses to comply with the  
            requirements of the bill.  In addition, UC indicates that  
            every two years it would incur costs of $420,000 system wide  
            related to collecting and analyzing data to generate a campus  
            climate report.  (General Fund)
