Las Vegas Sun, UNLV President Plans for ‘State of Fiscal Collapse’
UNLV President Neal Smatresk told a somber Faculty Senate on Tuesday that the administration was planning a kind of bankruptcy to deal with its budget crunch. Under the "financial exigency" plan, tenured professors could be fired and whole departments and programs more easily closed down.
According to this letter from the UNLV Provost, the Boyd School of Law must cut $2.3 million from its budget by Feb. 25.
