“If an institution is putting zillions into athletics at the same time they are proposing cuts to academic programs and faculty, they have their priorities all wrong.”

Irene Mulvey, president of the American Association of University Professors, regarding the University of Nebraska’s proposal to spend $450 million on a renovation of its football stadium in Lincoln, while also looking to cut millions of dollars from the university’s academic system. The renovation to Memorial Stadium was given preliminary approval this fall, while the four-campus University of Nebraska system faces a $58 million budget shortfall that threatens to cut staff and academic programs.
