University of Wyoming president to evaluate program cuts - BOB MOEN, Casper Star Tribune

University of Wyoming President Laurie Nichols said she will declare a financial crisis that will allow for the evaluation and possible elimination of academic and nonacademic programs at the state's only public four-year university. The university has to cut more than $40 million from its budget over the next two years to compensate for reduced state aid because of a drop in tax revenue from the downturn in Wyoming's energy extraction industry. Nichols said declaring a financial crisis allows her to appoint a committee that will review all programs at the university this summer. "It kind of opens the door to allow you to really look at elimination of academic programs," she said.
