LSU Library School Among Programs Targeted for Elimination

Link to May 29 article, "LSU to cut program".

Excerpt:  LSU is expected by Monday night ot propose eliminating several academic degree programs and institutes ranging from the School of Library and Information Sciences to bachelor’s degrees in German and Latin.

The “Phase I” plan calls for closing the Louisiana Population Data Center, architecture’s Office of Community Preservation and others.

Also, state funding would be eliminated for the United States Civil War Center, the Center for French and Francophone Studies and the T. Harry Williams Center for Oral History.

The proposals, which would save $3 million a year, come at a time of university budget cuts when more budgetary axing is anticipated in the summer of 2011
