WVU's $45 million spending reduction by 2020 could impact Tech - Bill Frye, Register-Herald

How the call by West Virginia University President Gordon Gee for the school to reduce its spending by $45 million by 2020 will affect WVU Tech is uncertain, say officials from the latter's Beckley campus. In his State of the University speech earlier this week, Gee noted that "decades of declining state support have culminated in recent years with $30 million dollars in reductions to our base budget." In addition, he reported, an enrollment loss last year took its toll and operating costs have increased. But still, Gee said the university would look to curtail tuition increases. "Continued increases in tuition would reduce our competitiveness and erode our accessibility to West Virginia families," he said.
