....a Nanook is a bear. A nine figure statewide budget to educate bears does seem a bit excessive, however.

Bear thing aside, 59% Caucasian, 24% Alaskan native/American Indian. Obviously a higher percent than most universities, but far from a majority.

They’re smarter than your average bear.

We might have a better indication of what will happen with UAA and UAF's athletic programs on Monday. (I don't expect a final decision, but maybe some hint.)

I tend to think this is all political negotiation and that some funding will be restored by the governor in return for some other budgetary concessions.
But...what do I know? 03-confused

I hope you are right.

But I fear both sides have become extremist on the issue. The University backers see the Permanent fund as the State's piggy bank and feel they should get that money first and lobby to do so (I was amazed how much the UA leadership has focused on advocacy rather than sustainability), and the governor and his core backers who want the legislature to stop raiding the fund, and so targeted the strongest lobby group for raiding the fund.

The compromise would be restoration of most of the funds, with a law passed (requiring 75% override) that sets a harder floor on the Permanent Fund Dividend which increases (slowly, saw $100 per year) until it actually hits the $3000 it is supposed to be (it has only a few years actually passed $2000, and has mostly been around $1000 after the legislature raids). That would be a win for reformed budgeting.

But I think it's turned into a all or nothing war, where neither will cave. So a lot of UA employees will get pink slips, and 2-3,000 students find their education put on hold.
