UMD continues to recover from budget cuts - MIchelle Alfini, NNCNOW

The University of Minnesota Duluth is continuing to work towards recovering from its budget deficit. Right now this means budget cuts to several academic programs. The cuts are based on college enrollment, so the three colleges with fewer students signing up for classes are seeing more of the cuts. That means deans from the college of liberal arts, the school of fine arts and the college of education have been given budget targets and will be looking for areas to cut. According to Lynne Williams, the director of marketing and public relations, It's all a part of an effort to keep the cuts from affecting too many students. "We're looking at programs where we have seen a decline in enrollment and a decline in demand and how can we reallocate resources from those programs that have that capacity to the programs that have more opportunity to grow and enroll more students," she said. http://www.northlandsnewscenter.com/news/UMD-continues-to-recover-from-budget-cuts-393184751.html
