ASU’s planned $6M cuts may impact downtown Phoenix campus

[Source: Jahna Berry, Arizona Republic] — Arizona State University’s cost-cutting plan could have a big impact on the downtown Phoenix campusArizona Republic reporter Anne Ryman wrote today: “Arizona State University plans to eliminate 81 administrative positions.  The cuts come as part of statewide reductions designed to close a $2 billion budget deficit for fiscal year 2009.  No classes, faculty jobs, or academic degrees are being lost, ASU officials say.” 

The plan must be approved by the Arizona Board of Regents.  The budget reductions announced on Monday total about $6 million.  ASU must cut its budget by nearly $23 million for the 2009 fiscal year.  The three-year-old downtown Phoenix campus wouldn’t lose staff, but could gain two programs from the West campus.
