Community Engagement and Legislative Advocacy

The Michigan House and Senate are advancing their versions of the coming fiscal year's higher education budget in the state legislature, and Wayne State's Division of Government and Community Affairs is asking for your help.

While both budgets include an increase for Higher Education and for Wayne State University, the Senate's budget includes a much greater investment in our students and our campus community. While Wayne State prefers the Senate's version of the budget (Senate Bill 857), the House's version has some very positive aspects as well. For instance, the House's budget (House Bill 5579) contains language that creates a task force made up of lawmakers and universities that would review the state's performance funding metrics next year. As you may know, Wayne State has long supported efforts to independently review the metrics to ensure they are incentivizing the rights things for our students and our state.

Would you be willing to contact your local State Representative and State Senator to let them know you support the Senate's version of the Higher Education budget and the House's call to create a task force to review the metrics?
