UMD Administration Reacts to Budget Cuts - UMD Statesman

The University of Minnesota Duluth is continuing to work toward recovering from its budget deficit of $2 million. Recently, information pertaining to cuts in programs, services and positions was announced. Fernando Delgado, Executive Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs announced “The university lost around 900 students between the fall of 2011 and the fall of 2015. Shortly after my arrival, and as I was reviewing the findings and analysis of the faculty task force that met during the spring 2016 semester, UMD received our annual budget letter from the System office that indicated an expectation for more specific and clear budget cutting measures. As a result of the data and information provided I identified upwards of $2 million in cuts to colleges, another $300,000 was associated with other administrative units, and VC Steve Keto and I identified another $3.5 million in one-time cuts to buy down our debt.
