Increase funding to universities

Universities have been underfunded for years, resulting in overcrowded classes, casualisation of staff, and deteriorating facilities.

While the Government has increased spending on higher education in recent years, in the  drive to deliver a surplus this year there is rumoured pressure to make cuts to higher education funding. 

Let the Government know that in the 2012 budget, we need an increase, not a decrease to university funding! An investment in universities is an investment in our future.
