In this episode, we discuss the state budget crisis. The governor is proposing 15% cuts in funding to higher education. We interview Washington State University president Elson Floyd on these proposed cuts, and what they could mean for higher education in our state.
Elson S. Floyd took office as the 10th president of the four-campus Washington State University on May 21, 2007. He succeeded V. Lane Rawlins as the leader of Washington State’s land-grant research university. Floyd has also served as president of the University of Missouri System and president of Western Michigan University.
