ANALYSIS: COLLEGES AND UNIVERSITIES FACE AN UNPREDICTABLE LEGISLATIVE SESSION - Kevin Richert, ID Ed News
The fiscal forecast for higher ed is, well, unsettled. All of the state’s two- and four-year colleges had to cut 1 percent from their budget this year — and they’ll have to follow it up with a 2 percent cut next year. It’s all part of a bigger cost-cutting plan from Gov. Brad Little, affecting nearly all state agencies, but not K-12. For Boise State University and the University of Idaho, the Little spending order translates to about $1 million in cuts this year, $2 million the next year.
