A majority of operations at UNM-Los Alamos fall in the black column, financially speaking, but a couple hover in red and that’s something staff and advisory board members aim to change.
The group brainstormed extensively during a meeting in the campus lecture hall Monday evening. Discussion included the current trend of declining enrollment at the college coupled with the always dreaded course cancellations.
“What concerns me is we’ve had dropping enrollment at the rate of 10 percent a year for four years,” board member Nelson Hoffman told staff. “Let’s hope some of the outreach programs you all are doing will bear fruit next year.”
Interim Dean of Instruction Kate Massengale told the board that course cancellations of classes that fail to meet the minimum enrollment are very disappointing to students.
“A few people had three classes canceled this semester,” Massengale said.
In order to offer more courses and perhaps be able to afford continuing classes with fewer students, Campus Resources Director Lisa Clough brought up the idea of seeking a mill levy next year.
