Higher education officials brace for impact of Trump liberal arts cuts - Jarrett Carter, Education Dive

Grinnell College last week began demolition to make way for a new $114 million complex dedicated to humanities and social sciences research and education. Scheduled to open in fall 2020, the new complex will house the school’s library and performing arts facilities, while incorporating new technology into the arts and humanities disciplines. Citing an anonymous insider from the Trump Administration, The Hill reported that the president plans to terminate the NEH and the National Endowment for the Arts, and to privatize the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. The cuts would save taxpayers about $290 million in annual federal spending, based upon FY2015 funding levels.
