The University of Kentucky Senate Council sent a scathing memo on Thursday to President Eli Capilouto over past and upcoming budget cuts, complaining about a lack of transparency and accusing him of creating a "false crisis." "Faculty recognize that the reduction in state government support represents a small part of the budget cutback," council chairwoman Lee X. Blonder wrote in the memo. "As such, they feel that the current crisis is largely due to presidential priorities that include new spending proposals in excess of $50 million."
