    Higher Ed Budget cuts

    Noticed in the below online article where NLU and Tech were making their budget cuts. Interesting that Tech shows $425,000 cut in Athletics and NLU showed nothing.

    I hope that is not all "real dollars" being cut and is just recategorizing. Does anyone know what was affected by the cut in the budget?

    As we already know, it is waaaaaaaay past time for Louisiana to STOP THE INSANITY of a 4-year university on every street corner. Close some of these redundant schools- $save millions$ and increase efficiency.

    sobering

    Did you notice that we are cutting athletics by $400,000+, and ULM by $0?

    Next year will be interesting.

    I think on the ULM board they have been complaining for over a month about the amount they will have to cut from atheltics. I think it is about the same as Tech's cuts.

    Looks like the next couple of years will be crucial for the rebuilding of athletics. We need to dig deep to maintain.

    Due to the floundering economy and drastic drop in petroleum prices, Louisiana is facing a huge deficit next fiscal year. Consequently, Gov. Jindal issued an executive order to cut state funding by 3% across the board. After his announcement, he decided it was in the state's best interest to cut higher education and healthcare by only half of what was originally proposed. Each institution determines how they distribute their own cuts, not the state.

    In my opinion, athletics can absorb these cuts easier than most all departments of our University. As a result of Tech's $2.65 million cut, we may be forced to shut down some of our academic programs. I don't think any of our departments are running at full capacity anymore as a result of the spending freeze. I think it's a dumb move by NLULMLRJC to not divert any of their cuts into athletics because they will get no return on their investment.

    But maybe Barack will just bail us out.... Come on Insider!!!!!! We want some pork!!!!!

    I am not sure cuts to "Higher Ed" programs applies to either USL or NLU
