UCA cuts budget

Posted By on Mon, Jan 25, 2010 at 4:54 PM

The University of Central Arkansas says it will cope with state budget cuts with a 1 percent cut in academics and 2 percent in other areas. The details:


CONWAY – The University of Central Arkansas is looking at ways to absorb recent state cuts without impacting the quality of instruction.
Gov. Mike Beebe announced Jan. 11 another reduction in the state budget. The latest budget cuts impacted UCA’s 2010 fiscal budget to the tune of $1,230,639. Academics will be reduced 1% of their budget and all non-academic areas will be reduced 2% of their budgets.
All cuts are coming from Maintenance and Operations, according to university officials.
There are no plans for furloughs, layoffs, or a hiring freeze.
“Because UCA has been in the mode of rebuilding reserves and we had planned for the possibility of an additional reduction, we have minimized the reduction in the delivery of teaching and services to students,” said Vice President of Finance and Administration Diane Newton.  “The cut will impact our ability to rebuild our reserves.”
The recent cuts could mean the delay of purchases for products or equipment and a reduction in travel. UCA President Allen Meadors is allowing each department the flexibility to manage their cuts.
The cuts amounts are:
·         Vice President of Finance and Administration -- $360,512
·         Office of the President -- $46,763
·         Provost  -- $712,538
·         Vice President of Institutional Advancement -- $31,332
·         Vice President of Student Services  -- $43,020
·         Vice President of University & Government Relations -- $13,986
·         Athletics -- $22,488.
UCA’s Budget Advisory Committee will be exploring other cost saving methods, Newton said.
