Pitt and other state-owned and state-related universities in PA. will not see any reduction over the next 12 months in their state funding.

Today's Phila. Inquirer article. The budget is expected to have final approval in a couple days.

The legislature refused to go along with the Governor's plan for a second round of drastic cuts to public universities.

Activism does work. Thank your local state rep and state senator.

Get ready to fight another proposed round of cuts that the Governor will try to get through next year.
