I've posted in response to other threads that I KNOW the University doesn't WANT to go private but has conducted studies as to what would happen IF the State of Michigan cut its funding. Well, despite the fact that the current governor has three degrees from UofM this article alleges that cutting off funding to the University is on the table (though not probable) as the State figures out how to deal with a $1.8 million budget deficit.
Even the mention of this makes me absolutely nauseous. To think that this would be the only state with its flagship University turned private. Absolutely pathetic. I hope Governor Snyder remembers he's a Michigan Man and keeps this from happening.
