Increase in Higher Education Funding

Governor Snyder will ask the Michigan Legislature for a $28 million increase for university operations when he unveils his proposed budget for 2016 tomorrow. If approved by lawmakers, the two-percent increase would bring the higher education budget up to $1.54 billion next year. MLive reports community college operations would also see their funding increase 1.4 percent, or $4.3 million, under the governor’s proposal. It’s the fourth consecutive year of increased funding for higher education in Michigan, following three straight years of funding decreases.
