University of Arizona Budget Challenge Continues Story - Andrea Kelly, Arizona Public Media

The University of Arizona's shrinking budget in the past decade has forced the administration to make difficult decisions to keep priority programs funded, the institution's president said. State funding made up 28 percent of the university's budget in 2006, and 10 budget years later, it accounts for about half as much of the total university budget. Proportionally, student tuition, fund raising and grants now make up a larger portion of the budget than they did a decade ago. Because of those changes, the university is forced to fund the programs that speak to its highest priorities, said Ann Weaver Hart, University of Arizona's president.
