STATE BILL COLORADO
‘Colorado State of Mind’ on Rocky Mountain PBS this week examines higher education, which is about to absorb even deeper cuts in its share of state funding. Program host Cynthia Hessin asks: How are public colleges and universities planning to deal with the budget shortfall, and what will the impact be? Is it time, as some have suggested, that the state’s public institutions become private, with no state support?
