UNH – Need or Want?

Even though the budget that the Legislature has proposed increases funding to UNH, they say it just isn’t enough. Consequently, they will be raising your student’s tuition. One item you won’t want to miss in this article linked below is the sentence – “The total value of the bonuses over those 10 fiscal years was $2,864,914, which would cover the tuition of about 268 New Hampshire students attending Keene State for the 2015-16 school year.”

It is also worth pointing out the Board of Chancellors all make around $200,000 per year or more, The Professors make almost double the national average (for male faculty, anyway). – http://faculty-salaries.startclass.com/l/7287/University-of-New-Hampshire-Main-Campus

Please read the article below and decide if you agree that they just aren’t getting enough of your money. Remember, when I vote on funding, I am voting on whether or not to take away your money and give it to them. Based on these numbers… should I?
