COLUMBIA, Mo. - Mizzou is facing a $60 million budget shortfall under a worst-case scenario for state support and enrollment.
Chancellor Alexander Cartwright held a campus faculty meeting on Monday to discuss the recommendations for the campus to close nearly 30 graduate programs.
Members of the meeting also talked about the financial straits the university faces in the coming year.
In January, the report by the Task Force on Academic Program Analysis was released. The report cited low numbers of applicants, graduates, academic output and grant production as reasons to possibly close the graduate programs.
Faculty passed a resolution Monday asking Cartwright to create a formal process for addressing the recommendations. Cartwright said he will decide on the recommendations by the end of the spring semester.
