U-M President says state higher education funding in holding pattern - Martin Slagter, MLive

Despite the Michigan House and Senate passing a state budget with a 2.9 percent boost to higher education funding, some university presidents still feel appropriations to their budgets remain a lower priority among lawmakers. The 2.9 percent increase, which was passed late Wednesday, June 8, was less than the 4.3 percent Gov. Rick Snyder proposed originally, with aggregated funding levels below 2011 levels. Despite modest increases in state appropriations each of the past four years, U-M President Mark Schlissel said higher education funding continues to be in holding pattern in the eyes of the state government.
