NMSU votes against tuition increase, may lower salaries to cut budget - JESSE MARTINEZ, KFOX14

Students at New Mexico State University will not have to worry about a tuition increase for the upcoming academic year. The Board of Regents voted against the increase, but it would mean the university would need to slash its budget by $10.7 million. "As we analyze budget reduction options, we must take a thoughtful approach to meeting these financial challenges, while planning for the future and avoiding more budget cuts in the short-term," NMSU Chancellor Garrey Carruthers said. The options being considered are salary reductions between 1 and 3 percent for administrators. University officials said restoration of the salary reductions wouldn't be considered until such time as staff receives a compensation increase of at least 2 percent.
