College feels economic crunch

-A A +A
By Carol A. Clark

UNM-Los Alamos is feeling the pinch affecting so many institutions and businesses these days. Department heads expressed the challenges they are facing during an Advisory Board meeting Monday evening in the Student Center.

 

“The news going into 2010 is that we’ve been buffered…so we’re going to have to tighten our belts to the tune of $65,000,” Campus Resources Director Lisa Clough said, adding that $65,000 is less than 1 percent of the school’s budget and something that is doable.

 

The overall budget for the college is about $5 million and some $2.7 million is from the state, she said.

 

“It feels like a bleak situation here,” said advisory board member Marie Chiravalle. UNM-LA Executive Director Cedric Page explained that there are things the college can do to help the situation.

 

“There’s the possibility of a tuition increase, fee increases, increases in the mil and on the expense side there are certainly some things we’ll consider,” Page told the board.

 

Steve Ciddio has worked at UNM-LA for 16 years. He is president of the Staff Development Committee and explained that the committee intends to do its part to help the situation.
