The budget isn’t working . . .

19 Oct

The budget isn’t working. Cuts are being planned behind closed doors, without campus input or scrutiny.

Here’s the deal:

  1. Funding across campus is not fairly distributed.
  2. Rising tuition undercuts the purpose of a public university by making higher education in Maryland less accessible.
  3. The university is becoming increasingly privatized. Out tuition, as a result, funds corporate interests instead of public interests.
  4. The budgeting process is opaque and lacks student/faculty/staff input.
  5. The administration is trying to hide the impact budget cuts have behind a façade of normality.
  6. The administration is choosing to sacrifice the quality of education in order to perpetuate systemic flaws in our institution.
  7. A better, more just, more democratic University is possible.
