About the University 2015 Budget Cuts
The University of Manitoba Administration is currently considering a sizable budget cut that will affect students and their academic programs.
The Administration has asked the various faculties and non-academic units, as part of the University’s annual budget drafting process, to prepare for and make recommendations for cuts that will be “on average 4% across the University”. These are not the first cuts the Administration has implemented, but they are largest in some time.
UMSU has prepared a short, but detailed, review of these proposed budget cuts based on the information available. You can download of a copy of this review here - Understanding The Cuts: How The University’s Budget Cuts Will Affect You.
