UW deans urge balanced budget approach, open dialogue - THADDEUS MAST, Laramie Boomerang

A balanced approach to budget cuts was the main suggestion in a letter sent to incoming University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols and the UW Board of Trustees President Dave Palmerlee by the UW Academic Dean’s Council. “Our message was, ‘Yes, this is a necessary part of what’s needed in this budgetary climate,’” College of Education Dean Ray Reutzel said. “But, on the other hand, there is a whole host of tools both the state and the university can look at for revenue generation that can make a balanced approach.” The letter outlines the deans’ concerns about likely budget reductions, although they don’t know exactly how deep the cuts could be. “It’s rough territory we’re going through now,” Reutzel said. “None of us know what we’re going to be working with.”
