Higher Education Budget Cuts Costs Jobs
11/30/2009

Higher education officials say budget cuts

in Kansas have forced universities to eliminate 450 academic

courses or programs and cut nearly 800 jobs.

Board of Regents members, who oversee the higher education

system, believe the reductions will make it more difficult for

students to graduate in a timely manner and produce fewer graduates

positioned to help ignite the Kansas economy.

Regent Gary Sherrer, of Overland Park, says that institutions are now turning away qualified

applicants to high-demand programs.

But House Appropriations Committee Chairman Kevin Yoder, an

Overland Park Republican, says the state's financial picture

remains bleak. He says spending will have to be trimmed even more

to keep the state budget balanced.
