Kirkland: State budget cuts threaten the sanctity of our public universities - Will Kirkland, Daily Northwestern

This new wave of conservative ideological purification would be merely laughable if it were harmless, but its not. It wields the potential to inflict serious, long-term damage on the institutions that matter most, like our universities and colleges. Budget cuts and changes to mission statements undermine the university’s basic premise and its ability to educate, to research, to call into question and to enact change. These attacks must not go unchallenged; the university is too important and its value to society too great. http://dailynorthwestern.com/2015/03/01/opinion/kirkland-state-budget-cuts-threaten-the-sanctity-of-our-public-universities/
