Schulz criticizes university spending - Cody Cottier | Evergreen news

WSU President-elect Kirk Schulz at a welcome event on March 31 during his first trip to the university. Schulz sent out a newsletter today detailing his first major areas of focus as president. Incoming WSU president Kirk Schulz sent out a newsletter on Tuesday calling for decreased university spending and the reintroduction of a formalized budget process, citing what he called unsustainable budget practices. He outlined the most harmful methods, chief among which was excessive spending on construction projects without adequate and clearly identified funding. He wrote that the university can’t rely on reserves to “make up” for uncertain funds. “The bottom line for the future: if we don’t have all funds accounted for,” Schulz wrote, “we can’t break ground and start building new projects.”
