The proposed budget cuts are the result of an elaborate process that began with committees of faculty in each of the university's 16 colleges. Each of the programs slated for elimination now must report back to Dr. Dorfman by the fall with plans to merge or close their programs.
Budget cuts to take effect in July range from $1.6 million to the College of Computer, Mathematics and Physical Sciences to $60,000 to the tiny School of Architecture. The biggest &r percentage cut -- 8.1 percent -- is in the president's office.
