ABC News: Universities Slash Budgets Nationwide

“At least 28 states, including Pennsylvania, California, Texas, Nevada and Washington, are talking about reducing aid to higher education for next fiscal year.

Years of cuts have led to a sort of restructuring among colleges and universities, as they eliminate and consolidate programs, trim administrative positions, impose layoffs and bulk up faculty workloads. But now they’re wondering if they’ve already cut all they can with a scalpel and if they’ll have to dig in with a knife.”
