uWindsor faces $5-million budget shortfall

June 2, 2009

As outlined in its 2009-10 budget, the University of Windsor projects a $4.78-million deficit. Operating expenditures for the year total $209 million. That figure was arrived at following a series of cost-cutting measures resulting in $6.7 million in savings. The budget shows that enrolment is down, with 12,766 full-time students projected for the fall, compared to 12,970 last year. Because government grants are based on enrolment, uWindsor "has to look at enrolment and get the most students we can." uWindsor Daily News | Windsor Star
