UMass Boston looking for ways to save amid $26M budget shortfall - Kathleen McKiernan, Boston Herald

University of Massachusetts Boston Chancellor J. Keith Motley is calling for furloughs, a higher faculty-student ratio and nearly 2.5 percent across-the-board reductions in all departments to stave off a $26 million budget shortfall for fiscal year 2017. In a letter sent to UMass Boston faculty and students, Motley said he is pursuing several recommendations made last month by the University Budgeting Committee and intends to undertake the changes this year. He called on vice chancellors and deans to “immediately” make plans to put the decisions into action. http://www.bostonherald.com/news/local_coverage/2016/11/umass_boston_looking_for_ways_to_save_amid_26m_budget_shortfall
