  • Another Perspective: HU’s reverse Robin Hood budget

    Highlands’ new budgetary policies rob from the poor and give to the rich. This is morally wrong and economically indefensible.  These budgetary priorities are also taking a toll on the academic programs and departments that more directly serve the students in college and beyond. This is why our faculty and staff union is growing.

     The public deserves to know:

     1) New Mexico is again cutting money to public education.  This year alone there will be approximately $800K of public funding cut to Highlands.
