Universities ‘struggling’ with state cuts

Three leaders of higher education in Mississippi warned legislators that continued declines in state funding could cause serious damage to public universities.

Mark Keenum, president of Mississippi State University, and William LaForge, president of Delta State University, joined Dr. Glenn Boyce, commissioner of the Board of Trustees of the Mississippi Institutions of Higher Learning, at the Senate appropriations subcommittee meeting Monday.

“State funding is crucial in keeping the lights on,” LaForge said.
