The Autonomous University of the State of Mexico (UAEM) will be making a request to state and federal authorities for a 1.5 billion pesos ($84.6 million) increase to its 2018 budget according to the university’s rector Alfredo Barrera Baca.

“We’ve spoken to different parties at the state and federal levels. The good news is that they have listened. Now we’ll just have to wait until September for the budget to be formally submitted,” he said.

The money will be mainly invested in the school’s infrastructure as well as on its academic and administrative staff. The installations of UAEM’s earlier departments — Engineering and Nursery among them — are in dire need of repairing or even substitution of their electrical wiring and overall equipment, said Barrera Baca. He also said that the school has to “reinforce both its teaching and administrative staff.”

Barrera Baca added that UAEM would rather obtain money through avenues like research and off-campus services than by raising tuition.
