WVU board prepares for budget cuts - Samuel Speciale, WV Gazette

West Virginia University is well-positioned to handle a statewide 4 percent budget cut, officials said Friday during a school Board of Governors meeting. WVU has been preparing for a reduction to the $100 million it receives from the state, said Rob Alsop, vice president for legal, government and entrepreneurial engagement. WVU’s total budget is about $1 billion. Where cuts are made will be revealed when financial leaders present a plan for dealing with the cut at the board’s next meeting, on Dec. 18, Alsop said. “We fully expect this cut to carry into next year and to be a base budget,” Alsop said. “The next few years, as we move forward, will be difficult.”
