McNeese State University concerned with budget cuts - ArkLaTex

Higher education is one of the hardest hit areas due to the state's budget deficit. Some University of Louisiana School System officials announced potentially closing the last two weeks of school for this spring semester in order to reduce costs. McNeese State university President Dr. Philip Williams says closure at McNeese is not an option even in a worst case scenario. "Closure is not an option at Mcneese, we will be open. we may be seeing cuts in travel, supplies and equipment, there may be cuts in hiring of new faculty that we really need to cover classes in the fall. those would be unfortunate because we really want to serve our students" said Dr. Phillip Williams.
