UofL seeks advocates, launches legislative action website
As national and state budget issues continue to raise concerns about higher education funding over the next biennium, the University of Louisville is asking its friends to help ensure that education doesn't take the brunt of governmental cuts.
UofL wants alumni, community members, faculty, staff, students and other to become UofL Advocates--supporters who will learn about the university's priorities and speak out on its behalf. The university also is launching a UofL Legislative Action Center website to help keep advocates informed about legislative issues and actions that affect the university.
"Now more than ever, we need your help, your voice," said President James Ramsey. "As budgets in Frankfort and Washington get even tighter, policy makers are faced with difficult choices - but cutting higher education should not be one of them."
A link to the Legislative Action Center will remain on UofL Today through the legislative session.
