Expecting deep budget cuts, UA Board of Regents discusses restructuring
The University of Alaska Board of Regents met in Anchorage on Thursday to plan for pending cuts to the system's statewide budget and to discuss the second phase of the university's restructuring plan.
"Strategic Pathways," the restructuring plan unveiled in January, targeted eight academic and administrative programs — e-learning, fisheries, community campuses, university relations, health, human resources, student services and institutional research.
Some of the proposed options include restructuring satellite campuses, consolidating online programs and different methods to deliver health and fisheries academic programs.
Decisions on how to proceed will be considered at the next regents meeting in June.
