UM yanks funds to balance $1.8 million budget deficit - Lucy Tompkins, Montana Kaimin

College of Forestry and Conservation Dean Tom DeLuca came to work on Friday, Feb. 24, to find $206,812.20 missing from the college’s designated funds accounts. Those funds were supposed to be used for things like paying lab technicians, buying lab supplies and funding student field trips, among other expenditures. DeLuca called Chris Comer, Dean of the College of Humanities and Sciences, to ask if he was also missing funds. Comer’s financial manager checked their accounts, and found that nearly half a million dollars ($474,671) was gone.
