News Education WCU hosts ‘Cuts Hurt’ forum Dec. 5

A discussion titled “The Western Carolina University Cuts Hurt Education Forum: Collaborating Toward the Success of North Carolina Education” will be held on campus Monday, Dec. 5.

The event, which begins at 7 p.m. in the Grandroom of A.K. Hinds University Center, is designed to bring faculty, staff, students, political leaders and WCU community members together to talk about the effects of budget cuts to education and what community members can do to affect changes. More than $400 million was cut last year from the budget for the University of North Carolina system.

The nonpartisan forum is being sponsored by the Office of Leadership and Student Involvement and the WCU Student Government Association with support from student political groups and the North Carolina Association of Educators.
