Kansas universities take steps to absorb 4 percent allotment cut - Peter Hancock, LJWorld

As college students in Kansas get ready to start a new academic year next week, university administrators across the state are still figuring out how to absorb a $23.6 million cut to state universities that Gov. Sam Brownback ordered in May in order to balance the state budget. Although the University of Kansas is taking the largest hit — a combined $10.7 million to the Lawrence and KU Medical Center campuses — officials there still have not announced how those cuts will be allocated, although an announcement had been expected by Friday. At Kansas State University, however, administrators said they plan to cut 3.85 percent of their spending across the board, even after raising tuition and fees this year.
