Missouri higher education leaders are asking lawmakers for more funding for operational needs and facility maintenance in the budget cycle that starts July 1. 

Several public university and college presidents from around the state appeared at legislative hearings last week in Jefferson City to advocate for more money.

Harris-Stowe State University in St. Louis is struggling to pay its faculty a living wage, said interim president Dwayne Smith.
