UA President Sander on Public Education, Budget Cuts and the Looming Funding Cliff

Sunday’s Arizona Daily Star printed excerpts  from a wide-ranging conversation with UA’s President,  Eugene G. Sander. Sander talks about:

  • UA’s national and international reputation and its benefit to the community;
  • The $182 million cut in funding at the university level and its effect on the school;
  • Providing an enrichment experience and engaging students;
  • The challenge of unprepared students coming out of the K-12 system;
  • Future UA budgeting and the funding cliff;
  • The connection between education and prosperity;
  • And much more.

The UA is an important stakeholder in our state’s public education debate. To read the entire op-ed piece, click here.
