UMass Budget - Good News and Action to Defend Higher Ed


Dear FSU Members,

The good news is that Governor Baker is proposing to level-fund public higher education!  This is a product of the campaign that the MTA – ourselves – has carried out during the past months.

If Baker’s budget proposal passes, almost every campus gets the same as the Governor proposed back in January, which was essentially level over FY2020.  UMass gets a little cut from Baker’s original FY2021 budget, but it is still higher than FY2020. (MTA is looking into why UMass got a bit less than originally proposed).
