Tech receives least funding from state

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]

Arkansas Tech University receives less funding per student than any other public university in Arkansas, according to materials distributed by President Robin Bowen at a recent meeting with members of the Student Government Association (SGA).

The meeting was held to discuss the funding Tech receives from the state government. Tech will receive an average of $2,657 per student during this fiscal year. Comparatively, the highest funding per student is received by the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff at $9,416 per student.

Evan Gray, SGA secretary of public relations, said SGA will be taking an active role in helping Bowen lobby the legislature.

“We’re all on board, like yes, let us do whatever we need to do,” he said. “Let us write as many letters as we need to, make as many phone calls as we need to. We in student government want to make the most for our students, so knowing that we don’t get funded like we should is really hard.”

SGA meetings are held on Wednesdays at 12:15 p.m. in the Senate Room on the second floor of Doc Bryan. The general student body is invited to attend SGA meetings.
