MU's Deaton talks budget with faculty council

Feb 27, 2012

University of Missouri Chancellor Brady Deaton spoke to the University of Missouri-Columbia Faculty Council Thursday before its regularly scheduled meeting. This was the council's first meeting since the University system's Board of Curators approved tuition increases that leave the system with a $47.1 million budget gap.

The audio above is raw audio from that meeting. At the beginning of the piece of audio, you'll hear Deaton describing the budget situation to the faculty council. At about the 6:40 mark, he discusses the University and the faculty's efforts to combat excessive alcohol consumption among students. He then opens it up to questions, and the first question related to MU's budget comes at the 11:40 mark.
