Transcript BUDGET CUTS AFFECTING UH By The Daily Cougar staff On November 12, Provost John Antel announced at a CLASS meeting that the University would be preparing for a cut in state funding for the 2010-2011 fiscal year. From then on University administrators would be looking for ways to not only make up the deficit, but also look for areas to cut or reduce spending and for additional sources of funding. A letter signed by Gov. Rick Perry, Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst and House Speaker Joe Strauss dated Dec. 6 asked institutions to "take a broad view across all programs and services to find savings opportunities." The state is essentially asking universities for a refund. "To comply with the new state-mandated budget cuts for this fiscal year, we are going to be looking for cash to return to the state, fund balances and reserves," Communication Director Richard Bonnin told the Daily Cougar. "We will have conversations about furloughs and other actions that will produce cash, but we will not be looking for program or personnel reductions as part of this cut." The University's total budget for the fiscal year 2011 was $874.4 million, according to the Department of Administration and Finance. Of the revenue coming in, 22.4 percent is either state general revenue or state funding. The administration is expecting a 15 to 25 percent cut in state general revenue. "Even if we have a 20 percent cut in general revenue, it does not mean we have a 20 percent cut in our total budget, because the general revenue is a subset of our total budget," Antel said. While state general revenue only equates to 22.4 percent of the University's revenue, 81 percent of the state funds go directly to pay for salary, wages and benefits. UH has already cut 133 staff jobs, according to Antel. Other changes in progress include reorganizing the IT department, fund balance management and instituting hiring limits. There is no hiring freeze, but Antel said that UH has slowed down on hiring new faculty. "When we lose that money, you can see right away where that impact is going to be. It's really people we're talking about," Antel said. "There's just no way to avoid having to deal with adjustments in a workforce. That's why we've already made significant adjustments to the workforce here at UH." Antel said that the worst of the layoffs could possibly be over, but plans for administrative consolidation could lead to further layoffs. There will also be a delay in the mission for Tier One. "We have to be realistic. We're going to get less money from the state. We're probably going to have to slow down in some areas," he said. The greatest impact to UH students are a reduction in financial aid and a reduction in course section offerings. "We will try to look at any course reductions with an eye towards minimizing the impact on students. We look at historical enrollments — student demand matters," Antel said. "We look at scheduling to make sure courses are available at various times and on various days. We look to maintain courses that students need to graduate." Student Government Association President Prince Wilson has been vocal about his opposition to cuts in the University funding, because of the effects these would have on students — particularly, he said, the possibility of an increase in tuition.
