Budget cuts proposed, University of Manitoba prepares - the Manitoban

The University of Manitoba administration has instructed faculties and other non-academic units to prepare for four per cent budget cuts for each of the next two years. According to U of M president David Barnard, the proposed cuts are contingent on how much the provincial government increases its annual operating grant for Manitoba universities. The provincial government increased the annual operating grant for all universities in the province by 2.5 per cent in their March budget for 2014-2015, surprising post-secondary institutions that were preparing for an increase of zero. As a result, the U of M is drafting its 2015-2016 budget in anticipation of either a 2.5 per cent increase or an increase of zero.
