Murray State University Interim President Tim Miller has released preliminary recommendations for consideration in the 2014-15 fiscal budgeting process.

The 48 proposals are the product of MSU’s three budget task force subcommittees. The subcommittees began work in September, after the university encountered almost $2 million in state pension obligations and a 700,000-dollar health insurance increase.

The robots that King teaches adolescents to assemble are capable of solving a Rubik’s Cube in five seconds.

The Council on Postsecondary Education is granting four universities, including Murray State, $839,000 to improve teacher quality.

Murray State is receiving $99,000 for a partnership program with Madisonville Community College, the University of Kentucky and the Kentucky Academy of Technology Education. The funds will go to help show science and math teachers how simulations and interdisciplinary problem solving can improve their work with accelerated students. The program also involves six school districts.

Murray State University employees will have to wait a little longer in order to sign up for open enrollment for their health plans.

For the second consecutive year, Murray State University has posted an all-time high enrollment.

A 1 percent increase on last fall’s number moves the Murray State enrollment figure up to an estimated 10,943 students.
