University of Missouri College of Arts and Science faces financial instability as O’Brien departs - TAYLOR BLATCHFORD, Columbia Missourian

As Dean Michael O’Brien prepares to leave MU’s College of Arts and Science in July, his replacement will take on an unstable financial situation and substantial budget cuts. The college finished the 2014-15 school year with a $5.24 million deficit in its general fund. It’s facing a 5 percent budget cut amounting to $4.2 million due to a university-wide enrollment drop of 2,600 students. Arts and Science’s freshman enrollment deposits are down by 487 for the fall. http://www.columbiamissourian.com/news/higher_education/college-of-arts-and-science-faces-financial-instability-as-o/article_2a64c304-2e75-11e6-b710-9be4109f2468.html
