Looming budget cuts worry University of Houston faculty - Lindsay Ellis, Houston Chronicle

The University of Houston saw an increase in state funding this year, but President Renu Khator asked academic departments to trim their base budgets by 2.5 percent. Non-academic divisions must cut 3.5 percent. For some departments, these figures come as a relief. In April, Khator told departments to prepare for sharper declines, as state lawmakers anticipated steep reductions to higher education funding. But other faculty wonder how long cuts can be sustained as UH strives to compete with the state's top research universities, Texas A&M University and the University of Texas at Austin.
