University Funding Petition

SAY NO TO UNIVERSITY OF NEBRASKA BUDGET CUTS

Governor Pete Ricketts has targeted the University of Nebraska - the economic engine and educational flagship of our great state—with devastating budget cuts.

By slashing the University of Nebraska budget, Gov. Ricketts will drastically increase tuition rates and add to skyrocketing student debt. And sadly, put the dream of a college education out of reach for many families.

These unprecedented cuts will change the University—a crucial driver of the workforce and economic growth in Nebraska—for years to come.

Sign our petition now. Tell Gov. Ricketts his proposed state budget cuts cannot come from one source—the University of Nebraska.

The governor has gone too far in recommending additional budget cuts in response to lagging state revenue. It is shortsighted to continue to underfund the University system.

As the Omaha World-Herald editorial said recently:  Gov. Ricketts has "abdicated his responsibility on the issue, shrugging his shoulders at the very time his leadership is needed."
