University of Saskatchewan funding slashed by 5.6% in provincial budget David Giles, Senior Web Producer - David Giles, Global News

The University of Saskatchewan is facing its biggest cut in history as the Saskatchewan government slashes funding by 5.6 per cent in the 2017-18 provincial budget. The government says cuts to the two universities in the province will save the province more than $30 million. “We’ve been preparing for a difficult budget for some time, but this is a troubling set of circumstances,” Dr. Michael Atkinson, the university’s interim provost, said. “It’s an unprecedented reduction for this university so it’s a sober time here at the University of Saskatchewan.”
