UW STEVENS POINT
The University of Wisconsin – Stevens Point is proposing the elimination of 13 academic programs as part of the solution for a $4.5 million budget shortfall over the last two years. Some of the programs being phased out include…Music Literature, Political Science, English, History, and Sociology. Vice Chancellor of Academic Affairs Greg Summers, says they’re seeing some pretty clear trends in enrollment that are down over a period of years. For that reason,they are contemplating moving resources from those programs both to repair the budget and to invest in the growth areas that we’d like to take advantage of.
