Cuts in the College of Engineering

Filed under: Campus Cuts - Departmental Stories — Tags: — Editor @ 5:47 pm

Cuts in all departments in the College of Engineering:

  1. All non-protected State-supplied budgets will receive a PERMANENT, one-time cut of 27%.   It is unclear if there will be additional budget cuts in future fiscal years. This means that the total staff salary budget will be cut 27%.  This comes as an additional cut on the 8% salary reduction. The total Department operating funds will be cut 27% and effectively wiped out. Supplies budget will be cut 27%.  Everything, absolutely every state funding line the ME Department has (except the faculty salary line) will be subject to this 27% permanent cut.
  2. All funds that are carried forward will be subject to a 4.6% tax each year.  The definition of “carry forward” extends to all funds unspent in one fiscal year and transferred to the next fiscal year.
