UN-SYSTEM PRESIDENT’S PROPOSED BUDGET CALLS FOR CUTS, POSITION ELIMINATIONS, AND TUITION INCREASE BY Brandon Benitz, KTIC

University of Nebraska President Hank Bounds released a proposed 2017-18 operating budget on Tuesday that he said protects NU’s highest priorities of affordability and academic quality despite a reduction in state funding that will necessitate difficult decisions across the institution. Bounds said the proposed budget, which will be considered by the Board of Regents at its June 1 meeting, shows prudence in a time of fiscal challenges for the state. Reductions approved by the Legislature and additional cuts from Gov. Pete Ricketts, coupled with NU’s unavoidable rising costs, will create a recurring budget gap of $49 million by the end of the biennium. http://kticradio.com/uncategorized/un-system-presidents-proposed-budget-calls-for-cuts-position-eliminations-and-tuition-increase/
