Enrollment fluctuations drive UM budget pressures - Dennis Bragg, MTN News

University of Montana administrators say they need to trim between $10 million and $12 million from the 2017 budget to make up for revenue shortfalls generated by the past few years of falling enrollments. That's led to difficult, tense times on campus. But the man at the center of storm - UM president Royce Engstrom -- remains hopeful of having a fiscally stronger university in the years to come. Worry has definitely been the theme on campus since Engstrom announced the target cuts in early November, impacting as many as 200 jobs. Fifty-two cuts would fall with faculty, including 25 unfilled positions. The rest would be "full time equivalent" staff cuts.
