Process for UW budget reductions working well - Wyoming Daily

Little feedback on proposed cuts at the University of Wyoming is “not a bad thing,” according to a local trustee. David Bostrom, a UW trustee whose term ends in 2019, said that while he has not received direct feedback on either the proposed cuts of 16 degree programs or the budget reduction plan outlined last week, he feels that shows the Wyoming residents have confidence in the trustees. “What it says is that the people around the state have confidence, and maybe even faith in what the university is doing, what the state is doing and what the governing bodies are doing. We’re doing the best we can and the solutions the administration are coming up with appear to be the right decisions,” Bostrom said. He said he has received some informal feedback as he’s visited with people on the street or events. “As a whole the attitude is one of well, the state’s gone through it, we don’t have as much tax revenue so that university is going to have to do the same thing."
