As you may have heard, Governor Corbett has proposed a 20 percent reduction in funding for the Pennsylvania State System of Higher Education in the 2012-13 state budget. Please find below a message from the State System in response to the Governor’s proposal. For WCU, the impact of this cut would amount to approximately $9.5 million.
Be assured that I will continue to provide you with updates as additional information becomes available. In the meantime, please know that the budget process has a number of steps and, as the Chancellor notes, we intend to tell our story.
