Bulk of Kansas higher Education Cuts Coming from KU, K-State

KSAL StaffMarch 2, 2016

The Kansas Board of Regents says the bulk of Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s higher education cuts will come from the state’s two largest universities and their affiliated programs.

The board released figures Wednesday showing that the University of Kansas and its Medical Center in Kansas City, Kansas, together will lose almost $7.2 million.

Kansas State University, its veterinary school and its agricultural extension research programs will lose $4.9 million.

Brownback on Tuesday imposed $17.2 million in cuts in the universities’ current budgets after state tax collections in February fell nearly $54 million short of expectations. The universities must make the cuts between now and June 30.

The regents said Wichita State University will lose $2.2 million; Pittsburg State, almost $1.1 million, Fort Hays State, $992,000 and Emporia State, almost $922,000.
