Universities prepare for more cuts
The state’s public universities have been warned that up to 8 percent of the budget might be slashed — after each university already had the tough task of dealing with a 3.5 percent tax cut.
Both university presidents — Tech’s Dan Reneau and GSU’s Horace Judson — have stated they will try diligently to make the cuts work without have to cut programs or faculty. However, that is easier said than done.
The total budget cuts at Tech could amount to nearly $6 million, while GSU’s cuts will approach $4 million. Those are hard numbers to swallow.
