Public Colleges Foresee Major Budget Cuts in 2011

Snohomish County may want to take another run at a 4-year university in the county, but economic times will tough on Washington State higher education institutions according to a new analysis by US News and World Report.

As signs of a tentative economic rebound hearten students and parents in states such as North Dakota and Arkansas, continuing high unemployment and state budget crises could lead to funding cuts to public colleges and universities in Nevada, Louisiana, Illinois, and many other states. Unless officials in troubled states find new tax dollars to support their colleges, administrators will have little choice but to impose hefty tuition increases or reduce the number of classes and services offered on campus. To help parents and students understand what they can expect from public colleges around the country, U.S.News & World Report (see July 12, 2010 issue) has combined data on the economic and budgetary strength of each state with funding for each state’s public university system to show which state systems will likely face budget pressure in the coming 18 months
