Arizona State University president Michael Crow says the school will cope with the latest $90 million reduction in state funding by increasing tuition, attracting more students and cutting costs in various places.

Crow says in a message sent Friday to faculty members that about $30 million will come from tuition increases.

He says the university will work to attract and retain more students from both inside Arizona and from outside the state.

On cuts, Crow says a focus will be minimizing the number of layoffs while outsourcing services such as custodial and bookstore.

  1. Where’s Crow’s pay cut? Did his wife ever take a cut for her 6 figure “advisor” role? Where is any mention of a moratorium on managerial raises and salaries?
