President Philomena V. Mantella wrote a commentary published in Bridge on February 25: “Michigan is dead last in Midwest in college funding. That must change.” 

Mantella wrote: "When it comes to public investment in public higher education in the Great Lakes states, Michigan is dead last. Michigan cannot deliver on that vast potential while dead last in educational investment. We need an educated workforce so we can compete and win in the new economy. Only then can we attract new and high-tech jobs to our state."
