From New Mexico, to Michigan and Rhode Island, financial pressures weigh on colleges and universities

According to KVIA-TV, big changes could be coming to New Mexico State University.

“We need to look very carefully at the budget,” explained Carol Parker, the university’s provost.

Under the proposal, the College of Education would be consolidated with the College of Health and Social Services. The new college would also add eleven majors from the College of Arts and Sciences.

The news from other parts of the country also is unsettled. Rhode Island’s three public colleges are facing financial challenges, and Adrian College might trim 23% of its full-time faculty in the next year.
