Lane Community College cuts programs, raises tuition for 2017-18 - Dylan Darling, Register-Guard

Full-time religion and philosophy instructor positions are gone and tuition is going up, as the Lane Community College board finalized budget curbs this week for the 2017-18 school year. The board also eliminated the respiratory therapy, watershed science technician and honors programs at LCC, as well as the Successful Aging Institute. The early childhood education program will remain although its funding will be cut, and the board decided to suspend the geographic information systems program for a year to review it. LCC also will keep some religion and philosophy classes. The number of jobs at the college to be cut as a result of the program eliminations is uncertain, but it will include counselors, teachers and a grants manager, according to partial information.
