University of Montana to cut 200 employees - Margaret Grayson, Great Falls Tribune

The University of Montana is cutting 201 faculty and non-faculty employees and eliminating entire academic programs after a budget shortfall from its ongoing enrollment crisis, President Royce Engstrom announced at a Tuesday forum. UM enrollment dropped to 10,915 this semester, a 6.5 percent decrease from the previous fall. The university budgeted for only a 5 percent decrease. Combined with a nearly 30 percent drop in nonresident freshmen, who pay more than in-state students, UM must account for a revenue deficit.
