The Nevada System of Higher Education receives 32% of its operating expenses from the State of Nevada. The State of Arizona provides 14% of the operating budget of the University of Arizona. The State of Virginia provides 0% of the operating budget of the University of Virginia. The State of Michigan provides approximately 10% of the operating budget of the University of Michigan. These schools are able to stand state budget reductions because they have been able to substitute research income. What is going to happen to Nevada high school graduates when they have to pay twice the tuition of that charged at much better schools? The answer is obvious. They will all go out of state to college.
