SeMo To Review Programs As It Looks For Areas To Cut Spending

September 23, 2003 -- Posted at: 2:45 p.m. CDT

CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. -- Southeast Missouri State is reviewing 18 academic programs, raising concerns of students and faculty that more budget-cutting measures may be on the way.

State funding for Missouri's colleges and universities is down to its lowest levels in nearly ten years and tuition prices keep going up.

Southeast has already made cuts in staff including deans, departments and administrators.  But officials cite projections indicating that Missouri may face a budget shortfall of up to $900 million in fiscal 2005.

The review involves programs with 27 or fewer student majors.  Nonacademic programs, including athletics, will also be reviewed.

A final decision is expected when the regents meet November 14.
