NDSU, university system explore deeper budget cuts -Helmut Schmidt, Inforum

Representatives of the North Dakota University System and North Dakota State University are analyzing Gov. Jack Dalrymple's budget proposal presented Wednesday, Dec. 7, that calls for a 15 percent cut in the higher education budget. Tammy Dolan, chief financial officer for the university system, said officials have been analyzing the budgets of every institution since the idea of a 10 percent cut in higher education spending for the 2017-19 biennium was floated earlier this year. "We are already looking at it," Dolan said. "And we will continue to look at it as we go forward." Dalrymple's proposed 15 percent higher education budget cut includes a provision allowing 2.5 percent tuition hikes in each year of the biennium to help make up for lost state funding.
