Budget Cuts and Layoffs at UVM?

* Causes
* Consequences
* Alternatives

A Campus Discussion sponsored by
Students, Staff, and Faculty Together

UVM's administration says that increasing the student body and tuition while laying off faculty and staff will be necessary to make up a projected $28 million budget shortfall. But what are the causes of UVM's budget deficit? What are the potential consequences of the administration's budget-balancing plans? What are the alternatives? Join Students, Staff, and Faculty Together - a coalition of campus groups seeking alternatives to layoffs and tuition hikes as a means to address UVM's budget shortfall - for this urgent campus conversation.
