A new strategic plan for the University of Georgia calls for more spending on research, but funding is uncertain.
The Athens Banner-Herald reports that the plan aims to hire star researchers.
It also calls for new and renovated buildings, increased graduate enrollment and more compensation for graduate workers.
But funding is a question.
Georgia will get about $389 million this year in state funding, or $53 million less than a decade ago. Increases in tuition and fees are making up the lost revenue to help pay for a budget that's increasing.
The associate provost for academic planning, Jerome Legge, says the strategic plan is a blueprint for where the school wants to go.
Legge says a committee that developed the plan is trying to set goals and be optimistic.
