Decreasing Funding For Health?
from Inside Higher Ed
Recent survey data from the American College Health Association suggest that all is not well on college campuses when it comes to health and wellness. Of respondents to the association's survey who knew their health center budget allocation for the 2021 fiscal year, 43% said that budget would be a decrease from FY20 funding. And although 40% said they were expecting to hire medical professionals, nearly one-quarter said they were expecting reductions for those staff instead. Sixteen and 17% of respondents also said they expected staff reductions in mental health and health promotion services, respectively.
