Temple News: Corbett’s proposed budget includes slash to Temple’s funding
Temple's student newspaper ran a news article highlighting how Gov. Tom Corbett's proposal to cut more than $40 million to Temple could impact the university’s commitment to public education. "As financial state support continues to decline, and the university relies more heavily on tuition dollars for revenue, privatization seems to be a viable option for Temple. But administrators appear adamant in keeping Temple public... 'We were successful in getting (last year's proposed) 50 percent cut pared back in large part because of our students,' said (Temple Chief Financial Officer Tony) Wagner. 'Temple students are passionate and they did a great job of working with other college students from around the state especially the state-related universities to go to Harrisburg and to really advocate for the university.'"
