NM budget crisis rears its head in courts, colleges - Morgan Lee, The Associated Press

New Mexico State University last summer cut nearly 40 active staff positions and scuttled an employee health center and a small engineering program in response to spending reductions and enrollment declines. The university also decided to fund the school's equestrian program for only one more year. University President Garrey Carruthers said a $10 million state funding cut in October has added urgency to a top-to-bottom review for new efficiencies. Academic programs could be merged and investments delayed indefinitely for student facilities and services. “We’re going to be more involved in surviving the cuts rather than making some strategic investments, simply because of the depth of the cuts,” he said.
