Paine College makes more budget cuts to live within means - Tom Corwin, Augusta Chronicle

Paine College is cutting another $500,000 from its budget as it tries to live within its means while still defending its accreditation with one group and applying for new accreditation from another agency, its board chair-elect said. Attorney Michael Thurmond said Paine President Samuel Sullivan informed the board this week that he was cutting $500,000 from the college’s budget. The cuts will mostly be eliminating vacant positions and are “administrative changes,” Thurmond said. And from that standpoint, the budget adjustment is a good thing, he said. “It’s just further evidence that we are serious about maintaining a balanced budget,” Thurmond said. “We’re going to operate within the revenues that we have, not the ones we expect to receive.”
