Coming to the Quad: Billboards

APP.COM - N.J. colleges told to raise more private funds, not to rely on state | Asbury Park Press Online: "'You need to get creative to find other revenue sources,' an angry state Sen. Stephen Sweeney, D-Gloucester, told college and university presidents gathered in a Statehouse committee room. 'The truth is you hire lobbying firms. The truth is you do advertising when it is not needed.'

Colleges and universities should consider solar energy, billboards and 'wi-fi' wireless Internet systems to generate more private dollars, said Sen. William L. Gormley, R-Atlantic.

Senators asked higher education officials to submit to the committee a list of lobbyists hired and the amount spent on them, as well as a list of all employees at state institutions earning more than $100,000 and their titles."
