HUNTINGTON, WV (AP) -

State higher education funding and expected budget cuts will be discussed during a series of forums hosted by Marshall University.

The first forum is set for Monday at Marshall's Mid-Ohio Valley Center in Point Pleasant.

Other forums are scheduled Tuesday at the John Deaver Drinko Library in Huntington and Thursday at Marshall's South Charleston campus library.

Each forum will begin at 6 p.m.

Marshall president Stephen J. Kopp says funding of public higher education is increasingly being shifted to students and their families.
