Funding cuts pit US university leaders against state - Ellie Bothwell, Times Higher Education

Many US university presidents believe that their state political climate is “hostile” towards higher education, according to a survey conducted by the American Council on Education. A survey of 1,546 US university leaders found that 41 per cent of respondents perceived their political climate to be hostile. Presidents of public universities were more likely to give this response (45 per cent) than their private college counterparts (36 per cent). Slightly more than half (52 per cent) of private university presidents and slightly less than half (48 per cent) of public university presidents thought that their state political climate was supportive.
