LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The University of Nebraska-Lincoln is proposing $5 million in cuts to deal with an increase in expenses, including utilities, insurance and operating costs, Chancellor Harvey Perlman announced Thursday.
The proposed cuts include elimination of several programs, including a master’s degree in classics in the College of Arts and Sciences and a K-12 art education program in the College of Education and Human Sciences. The university would also eliminate an undergraduate Industrial and Management Systems Engineering program, but retain the master’s program.
The one graduate student currently enrolled in the classics program will be allowed to finish within a reasonable amount of time, and the sole organ study student will graduate next month, the university said.
