(AP) - The governing board of the California State University system is tackling some weighty subjects during a two-day meeting this week, including the system's budget for next year and its approach to preventing campus sexual assaults.

The board of trustees is scheduled to meet on Wednesday and Thursday in Long Beach. The Wednesday agenda includes discussions on recent initiatives to make it easier for community college students to transfer to Cal State campuses and to increase the graduation rate for all students.

At Thursday's meeting, the board will be asked to approve the system's 2015-16 budget request. Briefing documents show the system is seeking an increase of $217 million, $97 million more than the governor's office has said it can expect.

Trustees also are scheduled to receive an update on Cal State's efforts to address sexual violence.
