  • My Fiction Icks
    By Jay Grummel When you read as much as I do you start to notice common things in fiction that make you annoyed, upset  or even want to put down the book completely. I have a bad habit of not giving books much of a chance when they use some of these personal ‘icks’. However, […]
  • Poetry for Fall
    By Jay Grummel Poetry has a way of connecting us to the external and internal world. In poetry it is easier to feel a season and truly feel a piece due to this. Poetry has a subtle way of making the readers immersed into the world of the poem. With the air getting colder and […]

Dean of Graduate College speaks about budget challenges to GSS

Michael Ogawa, dean of the Graduate College, spoke to the Graduate Student Senate about budget challenges at the third general meeting Friday afternoon.

Ogawa laid out two reasons for the deficit. He said a decrease in undergraduate and graduate student enrollment, as well as a decrease in the University’s share of the State Share of Instruction are to blame.

“We planned for a freshman class of 3,600 and we got a freshman class of 3,300 or 3,400,” Ogawa said. “That’s a significant shortfall of about 200 students and that’s about $2.5 million.”

Ogawa also proposed two solutions for the challenges and said strategic budget cuts for the short-term and the creation of a new sustainable portfolio of programs for the long-term will help solve the problem.

“Once the ship is righted … we can go back and do what we want to do and should be doing, and that’s providing a great education at a low cost for all of our students in a way that is sustainable,” Ogawa said.

The next GSS meeting will be hosted Oct. 25 in the McFall Gallery from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
