Some UM colleges tighten belts in budget crunch, at least one grows - Keila Szpaller, Missoulian

This is the first installment in a two-day series on the impact of budget cuts at the University of Montana. Dip in enrollment? Budget crunch? Not at the Phyllis J. Washington School of Education and Human Sciences at the University of Montana. "We are not suffering the enrollment declines that potentially have created part of this (budget) problem," said Roberta Evans, dean of the School of Education. The speech pathology program, for instance, has admitted only 15 percent of applicants, she said. Since there's a return on investment, the school will admit a few more of those students to support not only the Communicative Sciences and Disorders Department of the school, but the entire institution.
