KU Grad Students Worried About Cuts

KSAL StaffMarch 17, 2014

Some graduate students at the University of Kansas are concerned about a proposal that would cut back the number of hours they are allowed to work on campus because of questions about health care reform.

The discussion is still in its early stages because of unknowns in the Affordable Care Act about how the law applies to graduate students, many of whom say limiting them to 20 hours of work would cut deeply into already tight resources.

A spokesman for the university says the school is still trying to determine how the law affects graduate students and how much it would cost to insure them.

The university’s public affairs office says the school employed about 1,100 teaching assistants and 640 research assistants in 2013.
