UNIVERSITY OF ALASKA CONSOLIDATES CAMPUSES AFTER BUDGET CUTS - Jane S. Shaw, Heartland

The Alaska public higher education system is consolidating its three separate universities into one in the wake of a 41 percent cut in state taxpayer funding. Gov. Mike Dunleavy stunned the university world by cutting annual expenditures for the University of Alaska by $130 million, adding to earlier cuts by the legislature. Alaska spends $16,391 per higher-education student, more than double the national average of $7,642, Dunleavy noted in a June 29, 2019 budget memo.
