Kansas higher education officials say possible funding cuts would hurt academic programs statewide.

Presidents of the six state universities told the Kansas Board of Regents Wednesday that proposals to cut as much as 4% from next year’s budgets would mean fewer course offerings and programs.

Governor Sam Brownback wants to spare universities from cuts in funding.

He’s planning a statewide tour of campuses next week to gain support for his budget.

Regents say they are confident the governor will make the case to avoid the reductions.
