How much money does the state provide UMN? Less after each economic recession - RYAN FAIRCLOTH, Minnesota Daily

Though the economy has bounced back since the Great Recession, state funding to Minnesota’s land grant institution hasn’t followed suit. Tuition at the University of Minnesota has risen roughly 40 percent since 2007. Meanwhile, state funding lags behind rising costs and inflation. And if the trend continues, University officials and political experts say students could expect to shoulder more of the cost every year. “Higher [education] is not doing well at this point anymore, and it’s not a surprise because the consensus that used to hold together on higher [education] spending in the United States, especially in Minnesota, has broken down,” said Hamline University political science professor David Schultz.
