uLethbridge prepares for cuts

March 20, 2009

If the Alberta government implements university operating grant increases of 3% up to the 2012-13 fiscal year, the University of Lethbridge would have to look at cutting $10 million over 3 years. In April, various departments will be asked to review their budgets to see what can be reduced. The school may also leave unfilled positions vacant, reduce part-time and sessional budgets, or reallocate funds from equipment replacement reserves. uLethbridge's priorities for the upcoming year includes student recruitment and retention, resolving workload issues, and ensuring financial stability.
