Empire Editorial: UA's budget strategy is akin to climate change denial - Juneau Empire

There are two ways to address an unpleasant truth: You can confront it, or you can deny it. The University of Alaska has chosen the latter course.Last week, university administrators presented their fiscal year 2017 budget proposal to the UA Board of Regents. The budget proposal, expected to be approved in November, calls for $27 million more from the state.With the state facing a multibillion-dollar gap between revenue and expenses, and the state’s Office of Management and Budget saying the university should expect a $15.8 million DECREASE, the university system is preparing its budget based on an expectation that the Alaska Legislature will provide an INCREASE. http://juneauempire.com/opinion/2015-09-27/empire-editorial-uas-budget-strategy-akin-climate-change-denial
