Budget proposals show details of UND cuts - Anna Burleson, Grand Forks Herald

Details of proposed cuts have been emerging since UND announced a plan to reduce its budget, and documents released last week show planning has varied across the university. The Herald requested budget proposals from each of UND’s academic divisions -- its law, aerospace, engineering and business schools -- which showed they approached the cuts in very different ways, from a long presentation at the College of Engineering and Mines about priorities to a one-page short summary from the School of Graduate Studies. Interim UND Vice President for University and Public Affairs Peter Johnson said the documents are fluid and changing. For example, as of Thursday the decision to lay off one $45,000 staff position in the biology department in the College of Arts and Sciences proposal had been reversed.
