WSU Plans For Continued Budget Reduction Next Year - NADYA FAULX, KMUW

Wichita State University is planning on a 3 percent budget cut for fiscal year 2017. The move is in response to the state budget passed Monday that includes $17 million in cuts to higher education. WSU President John BARdo said in a message sent Thursday that the cuts should be considered permanent, saying "it’s unlikely state funding will be restored to universities in the next budget cycle." Earlier this year Gov. Sam Brownback ordered state universities to reduce spending by about $17 million dollars through June; the new budget will continue that 3 percent reduction into the next fiscal year.
