State Budget Cuts for Kansas Universities

June 5, 2013

This past weekend, the Kansas Legislature based a budget which will mean a cut of 1.5% in state funding in each of the next two years.  What does this mean for Wichita State University?  It means a loss of more than $3.3 million in state funding over the next two years.  The result for students is very likely to be tuition increases.  The Governor still needs to sign the budget, but I can't see how he could not sign it. 

I personally don't see how Kansas Universities will be able to absorb these cuts without increasing tuition for students.
