President Young’s statement on the Senate budget

UW President Michael Young released this statement regarding the Senate’s budget proposal:

“The Senate budget proposal released today puts a halt to four years of public disinvestment in higher education.  The Senate is to be commended to taking this bold stance.  Investing in students and their futures charts a course towards sustainable economic recovery and is the best possible form of securing our economic future.  Higher education sets people on the path that provides a lifetime of benefits for themselves, their families, and our communities.  The Legislature needs to adopt this budget for higher education.”
