May 04, 2018
Research from UW-Madison's Nick Hillman was cited by the St. Louis NAACP about performance-based public funding for universities in Missouri.

Hillman
Hillman is an associate professor with the School of Education’s Department of Educational Leadership and Policy Analysis, and a faculty affiliate of the Wisconsin Center for the Advancement of Postsecondary Education (WISCAPE).

The St. Louis NAACP said in a news release that Missouri is underfunding its two historically black institutions, Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis and Lincoln University in Jefferson City.

In his research cited by the NAACP, Hillman reported that the Missouri universities that have seen the lowest budgetary gains over the last 40 years are the universities with higher percentages of black students and students receiving financial need-based Pell Grants.

“There is a lot of work to be done with respect to understanding and explaining the causes of funding inequities in state higher education finance,” Hillman wrote. “Even more work is in store if we want to evaluate their consequences and discover new solutions to age-old problems in higher education finance.”
