Glenn Mroz Testifies Before Senate Higher Education Subcommittee
by Jennifer Donovan, director, public relations
President Glenn Mroz testified in Lansing last week before the Higher Education Subcommittee of the Michigan Senate Appropriations Committee. His testimony was part of a presentation by the Business Leaders for Michigan (BLM), an organization of CEOs from the state's largest employers, representing among them one-quarter of Michigan's gross domestic product.
Mroz urged the senators to support performance-based funding of state universities. Praising Gov. Rick Snyder for proposing a budget that includes incentive funding based on performance, Mroz said that the metrics used to evaluate performance need to follow the more concrete recommendations that the BLM has recommended.
