This report is an executive summary of a dissertation mixed-methods research study that investigated correlational relationships between state-funding distribution formulae and state-level CC governance structures across the national landscape. The purpose of this study was to determine if there were any correlational relationships between state-funding distribution formulae and state-level CC governance structures. State funding distribution formulae are tools utilized to substantiate the acquisition of funds and delineate the cost of education. Many states have experienced change since 2000 and it was critical to research whether or not state-funding has been an influence and/or driver of change. Furthermore, Mullin and Honeyman’s (2007) research about CC state-funding distribution formulae across the national landscape was found to be the most recent typology study from a review of the literature. As a result, an up-to-date typology of state-funding distribution formulae was needed.
