NC legislature budget proposal: How universities are affected | News & Observer
  • Some UNC funded items were not among the system's spending priorities, and the legislative budget proposal also includes unusual cuts that target five campuses ó with the largest reduction, $1.1 million in supplies and purchasing contracts, at East Carolina University.
  • A new medical school building for East Carolina University was not included in the budget, but the UNC board of governors would receive $3 million for a task force to study science and technology building needs, including at ECU.
  • A separate bill that would allocate $14 million for ECU's Brody medical school building was filed this week, but it was referred to the rules committee, where bills often die.

I would like to hear ECU's admin thoughts on the budget. At first blush it appears that they are heaping money on the flagship, who doesn't need it at the expense of others (which would be as-per-usual).

Plus paying for a few other things, like a Chiropractic school at Winston-Salem State. That is absurd and the WSSU, UNC System, & NCGA should be ashamed at allocating money towards that. Especially when Brody/ECU is in such need.

Agreed. Budgets are always tough. Quite a few people are going to get the short end of the stick every year. WSSU is certainly on the lower end of the totem pole of the state supported schools compared to ECU, so I don't have a problem with the state trying to assist them this time. Next year's budget may have more money allocated to ECU. Of course UNC is going to get theirs every year and the other schools will have to fight over the leftovers. That's just how it works unfortunately.

Iím pretty sure the point MrBoj was trying to make has nothing to do with WSSUís position as a state university. It could have been UNC or anyone else...

Right. Why are you going to create a new school, when current schools need financial help. Not even going down the MD vs chiro path. I would be much more beneficial to eastern NC for that money to go to Brody.

Sadly it seems as though "educational" institutes are are looking for ways to make more money (a new school with more students) vs improving old schools. It's not surprising when you consider the student loan market is likely to be the next bubble to pop like the housing markets high-risk mortgages. The schools, like the banks, see a way to make a lot of money lending to unsuspecting students and put their resources towards ways to make easy money (new students) vs improving the quality of their current service of education.

Simply Natural Creamery’s Greenville store opens today. Arlington Blvd outside Publix shopping center - in the old WITN studio they used before moving all operations here.
