Ransdell announces plan for budget reduction in email blast - WKU Herald

Once tuition revenue is accounted for, Western Kentucky U President Ransdell said the university still needs to achieve a total reduction of $6,039,200 in order to achieve a balanced budget. "Given that we have already reduced our state appropriation by $15 million over the last decade and reallocated or reduced another $15 million in university funds in the last few years, there are no obvious or easy solutions," he said. He said this reduction will be achieved through administrative reorganization of units within Academic Affairs and Student Affairs. This would involve the shifting of some items from permanent funding to one-time funding, allocating a surcharge increase for online courses to the central budget and minimal program reductions and eliminations in several divisions.
