Video: UMass Board of Trustees meet in Worcester
The UMass Board of Trustees came to UMass Medical School on Wednesday, Dec. 7, for its regularly scheduled meeting and voted to approve a $502 million state budget request for the fiscal year that begins on July 1. UMass President Robert L. Caret said that the University and its students need to return to a posture where the state is subsidizing at least 50 percent of the University’s general educational expenses. The $84 million increase over this year’s $418 million in state funding would bring the University close to achieving the 50-50 funding balance.
