University System To Cut Spending

The University of Nebraska President is telling campuses to cut spending now, or be in for a hard blow once budget cuts are made.

J.B. Milliken sent faculty and staff the warning Monday that budget cuts were possible, and the University must use the rest of the fiscal year to prepare for more difficult times.

Milliken along with 4 University Chancellors met yesterday to talk budget strategies. Although no specific goal on how much to cut spending was reached, the five did agree to work together on how to get through the next fiscal year.
