Public university funding is turning ugly. We've all followed the harsh cutbacks in the California university system. Now Rutgers, and other New Jersey colleges, are going to take their lumps. It appears, for example, that Rutgers will have to absorb a 15% cut in its direct state funding during the next school year. That's some real money.
A couple of days ago I suggested that proposed in-state residency requirements could be problematic for Rutgers faculty retention. These budget cuts aren't likely to help matters.
