Budget cuts expected to hit UF liberal arts
The University of Florida’s College of Liberal Arts and Sciences is facing $5.9 million in budget cuts in response to reduced state funding in the budget signed last month. The college’s proposal is to lay off staff, freeze faculty hiring and reduce admissions to selected doctoral programs. UF Faculty Senate Chair Marc Heft says he is disappointed the university is taking another cut to the operating budget.
The college has scheduled a public forum for Thursday at 2:30 pm in the Reitz Union Auditorium to discuss the plan.
