Will state budget reductions ever stop? - Daily Campus Editorial Board

As was to be expected and has been the norm, when the Board of Trustees met exactly one week ago, state budget cuts were yet again a main topic of discussion. There will be a 7-percent decrease in funding for the University of Connecticut from the state’s budget over the course of the next two years, which forces the university to make tough financial decisions. This comes as the university has looked to grow both out of necessity, building new residence halls to catch up with an increasing student population, and to preserve and build upon upon its academic and research reputation. President Susan Herbst said about the cuts, “We are very concerned about the effect another round of significant cuts will have on our students, the quality of education we are able to offer and our place in the rankings.”
