University of Montana squeezes budgets for upcoming fiscal year - KEILA SZPALLER, Missoulian

The University of Montana will use adjuncts far less in the coming school year as one way to shore up its tight budget. Currently, UM employs an estimated 20 percent to 24 percent of its faculty on a part-time or annual basis, UM spokeswoman Paula Short said this week. The next fiscal year begins July 1, and UM is finalizing its budget to reflect a general fund that's roughly $1.3 million smaller than its $146.4 million budget the current fiscal year. The drop isn't as steep as UM had forecast as a worst-case scenario.
