As a student of UNL, I have great interest in how they are investing and spending my tuition money.
It seems only a couple weeks ago, I received an email from the University stating that they were truly sorry, but they are going to cut back several of the art programs and some of the teaching areas.
A week later, Bo Pelini receives a huge salary increase. Recently, they released the plans to build an $80 million dollar complex at Innovation Campus, and they are raising the salary of the other professors, but the university doesn't have enough money to keep programs available for students to learn? Isn't education the first priority at the university anymore? Even though it may be a research university, the first priority should be the students and their education. I believe UNL is not focusing on what is important to make a good university and is focusing too much on their extracurricular programs.
