U. of Massachusetts releases reorganization plan

March 13, 2009

The chancellor of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst has announced the details of a reorganization of the institution, which faces a $46-million reduction in state funds next year.

Reorganizing the campus is expected to save more than $1-million in administrative expenses. The university has also raised student fees, which should put a $20-million dent in its deficit. 

Among the proposals is the elimination of two college and the possible merger of the College of Humanities and Fine Arts with the College of Social and Behavioral Science.

In addition, the faculty union at Amherst agreed to a one-year pay freeze last month.
