Members of the University of Nebraska Board of Regents have released a letter outlining how the university system is doing more with less, controlling administrative costs and growing strategically to better serve students and the Cornhusker State.
The letter was sent March 8 by Rob Schafer, chairman of the NU Regents, and Tim Clare, vice chairman. It was issued to all members of the Nebraska Legislature in anticipation of the state budget debate the week of March 12.
The budget package advanced by the appropriations committee reduces the university system’s 2018-19 reduction from the $23 million originally proposed to about $6 million.
NU President Hank Bounds has applauded appropriations committee members, including Chairman John Stinner, for making higher education and the university’s 53,000 students a priority.
The letter is available for review here.
