University of Arizona Loses Colleges

University of Arizona is feeling the crunch when it comes to budgets.�� These cutbacks are having a negative impact on staff, and threaten the existence of college programs.

Cutting 20 percent from the University of Arizona budget would be the equivalent of closing six colleges within the school, university officials said in a letter sent to Gov. Jan Brewer.

The governor recently asked government agencies to come up with plans for cutting 5, 10, 15 or 20 percent from their budgets as the state wrestles with an estimated $3 billion budget deficit.

UA said $15 million in permanent cuts from this year that it covered with borrowed funds from auxiliary accounts is equivalent to laying off 300 people.

The Arizona Board of Regents, in a 30-page document, emphasizes the maintenance of effort provision in the federal stimulus funding package and the crippling effect additional state cuts would have on higher education.

These cuts have led to the loss of 600 jobs, and have caused 4 colleges to consolidate in to one big unit.�� Among the three universities and regents offices, $200 million has been cut all together.
