We need to try to make budget cuts that will have the least long-term effects on the fewest students

As the tough budget discussions begin, I ask that you all keep your eyes on the principle of openness. I believe that all of us are wiser than just a few of us. Sharing information and making it easy for the public to use the information available leads to better questions and better solutions. Being open and transparent will help the community buy into the difficult decisions that have to be made.
