University of Alaska Risks Accreditation Over State Budget Cuts, Accreditor Warns

Inside Higher Education is reporting that the Northwest Commission on Colleges and Universities has indicated that state-level budget cuts could endanger the university's accreditation status. From Inside Higher Education: "State lawmakers are meeting this week to decide whether to override Dunleavy’s budget cuts, which go beyond those to higher education. The governor has said that the statewide cuts are for the health of the Alaska Permanent Fund, which provides state residents a dividend based on oil revenue." The potential budget cut to the university would be about $41 million if the legislature does not override the governor's veto.
