Education > School trims electives as proposed budget is set at $5.5 million

The advisory board for the University of New Mexico, Los Alamos campus as well as the school’s administration recently took a hard look at the school’s proposed budget for fiscal year 2015,
Though the UNM-LA proposed budget for 2015 is a little leaner than the current year’s budget, it won’t be meaner, in that the school’s administration has managed to preserve all of the classes and services students will need to complete their degree programs.
“We have no plans to discontinue any degree or certificate programs we currently have listed in our roster.” Campus Director Dr. Cedric Page said. He also added that the school is currently pursuing grants that will help aid student performance, and that they will be trying new strategies to increase the enrollment numbers for next year.
UNM-LA’s approved budget last year was $5.9 million; this year’s proposed budget is $5.5 million. Though the advisory board put its stamp of approval on it Monday, it still has to go before the University of New Mexico’s Board of Regents for final approval sometime in the next 10 to 15 days.
