California Gov. Gavin Newsom’s revised budget plan released Friday would invest nearly $49 billion in the state’s public colleges and emphasize workforce development as a tool for pandemic recovery.┬áNotably, the proposal provides more than $433 million to designate Humboldt State University as a polytechnic institution, which the state said would help prepare students to work in high-demand fields.┬áStates are partnering with colleges on worker training initiatives they hope will help their economies heal from the pandemic.
