LINCOLN, Neb. – The University of Nebraska-Lincoln chancellor’s proposed budget cuts include eliminating a degree program and a research center for the design and evaluation of educational practices in the nation’s schools.
Chancellor Ronnie Green’s plan went Wednesday to the Academic Planning Committee on Wednesday. A public hearing on them is scheduled for May 2. The cuts include the elimination of at least 18 staff positions.
Green said Thursday afternoon the proposed cuts would have “a significant impact upon the university’s operations and our students, faculty and staff.”
Gov. Pete Ricketts had sought 4 percent cuts for the 2018-19 school year for the NU and state college systems, but the Legislature decided instead on 1 percent budget reductions.
