Plea for Support to Prevent More Cuts at NC State University
Dear Friends of the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences,
The NC House of Representatives is proposing to cut the 16 campus University System by approximately $225 million (see http://tinyurl.com/3am2gu5). This could result in more than a 10% reduction in the College of Agriculture and Life Sciences at NC State University. If this reduction would occur, we would have to eliminate more than 250 positions which would severely reduce our ability to serve our clientele and their communities throughout the state. If you have any concerns about this reduction, please contact members of the NC House of Representatives personally, by telephone or email. The link for the House members is below for your convenience. http://tinyurl.com/3x94xv9.
