More program cuts expected at UA make up $8 million budget reduction - KTUU

An official with the University of Alaska Anchorage was finally able to make a simple promise in front of his staff, students and faculty on Friday. “There will be no interruption of service from June 30 to July 1,” announced Interim Vice chancellor Patrick Shier at a town hall addressing the budget. Although the meeting was originally scheduled to discuss “a variety of scenarios” in the case of a state government shutdown at the end of the fiscal year, a compromise at the capitol lead to the passage of an operating budget and funding higher education for FY 2018. The UA system was cut by $8 million compared to last year. It’s a compromise between the House’s plan to flat-fund the UA system, and the Senate’s plan to cut $22 million. http://www.ktuu.com/content/news/University-of-Alaska-430490093.html
