Tim Clare, parter at Rembolt Ludtke and member of the University of Nebraska’s Board of Regents, wrote an op-ed published in the Lincoln Journal Star challenging the severity of the state’s proposed budget cuts to the University of Nebraska.
… I’m struggling with the fact that the recent budget proposal assigns one-third of the cuts to the University of Nebraska when our university only makes up 13 percent of the state’s budget – especially at a time when the university’s upward trajectory puts us in the perfect position to help state policymakers grow our way out of this challenge.[…]
We’re going to continue to find every dollar in savings that we can, although we will also be candid about the impact that further cuts would have on the affordability of a university education and the depth and breadth of our academic programs.
