U of L Looking At Ways To Deal With Budget Reduction

 
 

LETHBRIDGE - The University of Lethbridge has come out with a number of proposals to deal with a 7.3 percent funding reduction in their operating budget from the province. That percentage amounts to a loss of just under $12-Million to the continuing operating budget.

 

University officials don't plan on replacing all positions lost through he Academic Staff Voluntary Retirement Program. They also want to reduce the Life-cycle Equipment Allocation by a million dollars. As well, there is a proposes student administrative fee increase to $37.50 per course and it's hoped an additional $900,000 a year will be brought in from increased international student tuition fees.

 

University President Mike Mahon says, "This new landscape is the most challenging landscape institutions in this province have faced for many many years, so our challenge is to balance our values around access, with our values around quality and our values around people, so when we look at the cost that students are bearing today and potentially in the future in terms of these increases, we still see that we are the University in the CARI sector that has the lowest tuition and the lowest fees and this is important for us."

 

Mahon says this is an ongoing process and they will continue to seek input on solutions.
