University of Toledo looks at cuts of up to $17M

College Tuition

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — Officials at the University of Toledo say budget cuts for the coming year could total $17 million.

The Blade newspaper in Toledo (http://bit.ly/Ye1w1m ) reports that the proposed cuts could impact every academic program at the university.

The head of the university’s board of trustees says dropping enrollment along with less money from the federal and state governments are making the cuts necessary.

The school already has decided not to raise tuition.

In addition to cuts for academic programs, reductions for libraries, student affairs and other programs are on the table.

A final decision will be made later this summer.
