A little more than three months after Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans, forcing administrators to cancel the fall semester at Tulane University, the storm has dealt another blow to the institution.

On Thursday university officials announced a sweeping restructuring that will slice $60-million from the annual budget and will result in the layoffs of 233 faculty members, the elimination of 14 doctoral programs and 5 undergraduate majors, and the suspension of 8 athletics teams."


This looks like the real world impacting the ivory tower. I wonder if other institutions will use this as a case study to at least gradually cut programs to protect their long-term survival. However, I'm curious if there are any administrative cuts to match the faculty cuts???? Just a thought.
