University of Montana president to announce “next steps” in budget cuts

Posted: Updated:

MISSOULA - University of Montana President Sheila Stearns has called a press conference for Thursday to discuss a special committee's conclusions on academic programs and likely budget cuts.

Over the past few days, a special committee has been going over all of the university’s programs and forming what’s called an “Academic Program and Administrative Services Prioritization”.

That’s basically a list ranking more than 400 different class offerings and programs, rating them from “strong” to “not suitable”. 

Stearns appointed the panel and gave them less than a week to review the programs list and come up with the ranking. 

University officials are seeking to trim spending to match the current lower enrollments in Missoula that have continued over the past several years.
