Plans for a UNT branch in Frisco raise concerns about straining state funds
Written by Valerie Wigglesworth and Eva-Marie Ayala
Frisco and University of North Texas officials on Tuesday unveiled a plan for a 5,000-student branch. But the plan to add one more university campus to a North Texas region already served by almost 40 traditional colleges and universities has some lawmakers and education officials vowing to look closely at the plan before giving it their support.
Some state leaders are concerned that Texas may be building too many campuses and programs when public funding is already stretched thin ... Paredes worries that more programs sharing limited state dollars would mean declines in higher-education quality overall.
