President MillikenStatement on the Appropriations Committee’s preliminary budget recommendations, Feb. 28, 2013

“I was surprised and disappointed by the preliminary recommendation from the Appropriations Committee. The University of Nebraska has ambitious goals to grow enrollments, expand programs in agriculture, medicine, engineering and other programs that directly affect Nebraskans, attract new talent to the state and contribute to Nebraska’s competitiveness in the knowledge economy – but all of these will require investment and we will not be successful without the partnership of the state. We have understood the economic pressures that led to five straight years of flat appropriations, but this is not a sustainable trend if we are to remain both affordable and competitive. We will continue to ask the Appropriations Committee to invest in the university as it is in other state priorities.”
