FSU Faces Funding Problems

January 17th, 2008 by Mike Vasilinda

Governor Charlie Crist is recommending an increase in some high education funding in the coming budget, buy says he will oppose any efforts to increase tuition again next year. The recommendation comes as many colleges, including Florida State, are considering cutting as many as 100 faculty and staff to make ends meet in the current budget year. University Chancellor Mark Rosenberg says the Board of Governors is looking for budget solutions.

“What FSU is very concerned about is that they have a huge demand for admission and they don’t think they have the ability to meet that demand or worse that they’re going to have to cut both employees and faculty, even at the present levels,” Rosenberg said. “So we’re gonna sit down with FSU and work that out.”

The Chancellor says the Board of Governors may have to consider a tuition hike itself, beginning in the fall, if lawmakers and the Governor don’t come through. A law suit has yet to settle the question of whether the Board has the authority to raise tuition.
