LSU faculty say state budget cuts could be daunting to higher education - Quincy Hodges, | The Times-Picayune

LSU faculty members say if the state's current proposal to cut $60 million from the university goes through it would demoralize faculty morale and set back higher education in the state by decades. In order to fill a budget shortfall of $1.4 billion for next fiscal year, Gov. Bobby Jindal's administration has said budgets cuts to higher education institutions could reach up to more than $300 million. "People, and particularly the governmental officials who make budgetary decision don't really value higher education," Kenneth Mcmillin, LSU Professor of Animal Sciences said. In the past three years, LSU has been working to rebound from losing more than 220 faculty members.
