We're from Texas

The fight for UT is far from over. [Texas Monthly]

For UT, the biggest issue facing the University is not the fate of Bill Powers. It is whether the current or future leadership of UT-Austin will be allowed to continue on the course it had set before the incumbent regents were appointed. UT-Austin spent three years and a lot of money developing a plan for the future known as the Committee of 125. But the Perry regents had their own agenda. Regents chair Gene Powell has said that he wants to add 5,000 students a year over the next four years, and he wants to cut tuition in half. It is impossible to run UT-Austin with tuition that is half of the current level. The regents also favor more online courses. More students and less rigorous courses is how you turn UT into a degree mill.

Amen. Keep UT the world class institution that it is. [Wake Up Longhorns]
