The College of Engineering will face about $900,000 worth of budget cuts — 5 percent of the college's total budget — for fiscal year 2017, Dean Elizabeth Loboa announced at a faculty open forum in Lafferre Hall on Thursday afternoon.The cuts come a day after MU Interim Chancellor Hank Foley announced hiring freezes and 5 percent cuts to MU’s total 2017 fiscal year budget. The engineering dean’s office announced the open forum Monday and said there would be both human resources and benefits representatives present. The announcement and Foley's “bummer memo” made staff and faculty members fear massive layoffs, Loboa said.
