UA officials considering enrollment cap

Posted By on Mon, Sep 12, 2011 at 8:37 AM

The University of Arkansas-Fayetteville, which has enrolled more than 23,000 students this fall, has begun talking about a 25,000-student enrollment cap so that the campus can catch up with recent jumps in enrollment. The Traveler newspaper at UA reports.

“We believe we must take a breather from the phenomenal growth we have experienced the last three years,” said Chancellor David Gearhart. “Frankly, we have grown much faster than ever imagined, and it has put a strain on our faculty, resources, services and physical facilities.

“The provost and enrollment services are looking at this issue and studying it closely,” Gearhart said. “We don’t have all the answers yet, but we will long before we reach that number.”

    Great piece in Washington Post on the budget crisis in Louisiana. Big tax cuts and corporate welfare will do that to a state, particularly to a state whose previous governor, Republican Bobby Jindal, refused to join the Obamacare-funded Medicaid expansion. There's a lesson there for Arkansas.
