UNR President to Recommend $11 Million in Cuts

RENO, Nev. (AP) - University of Nevada, Reno President Milton
Glick plans to submit recommendations to the Board of Regents next
month that will reduce the school's budget this fiscal year by $11
million.

Among the recommendations are eliminating several degree
programs and retaining a bare-bones College of Agriculture.

The $11 million reduction is on top of an earlier $33 million
state-ordered cut at UNR and is the Reno campus' share of
state-mandated cuts being made to public higher education
institutions.

Glick says he wishes the school didn't have to go through the
cuts and that they are painful. He presented his revised
recommendations Wednesday to the Faculty Senate.

Under the revised recommendations, 27 tenured or tenure-track
faculty would lose their jobs.

The Regents will consider the recommendations June 3.
