Essential Services: Counseling and Testing Center affected by budget reduction plan - WKU Herald Editorial

For the 2016-17 fiscal year, WKU has reduced its budget by $6,039,200, according to the Fiscal Year 2017 Budget. In the budget reduction plan multiple programs were reorganized, reduced and eliminated including the consolidation of the Alive Center and the Institute for Citizenship and Social Responsibility, reducing budgets for Gatton Academy and the track and field teams and eliminating the pre-doctoral intern program in the Counseling and Testing Center. All of these programs are important to the university, and the reductions will have a negative effect, but the center is an essential and important part of the university that provides services to students, faculty and staff.
