Arizona Governor Ducey budget plan cut to University of Arizona: $21M - Carol Ann Alaimo, Arizona Daily Star

Ducey's nearly $9.1 billion spending plan also cuts funding to promote tourism and dips into other state funds. Gov. Doug Ducey's budget is proposing a $21 million funding cut next school year for the University of Arizona, the region's largest employer. The UA cut is part of a $75 million package of proposed cuts to the state's public university system. It also includes a $36.8 million reduction for Arizona State University in Tempe; about $13 million less for Northern Arizona University in Flagstaff and a cut of about $380,000 to the UA's Health Sciences Center in Tucson. The budget said the cuts were apportioned based on the number of students enrolled at each of the universities.
