The looming budget cuts will be a “difficult challenge” for UNCG, the chancellor said last week, as work on the budget continues in Raleigh. If the cut for 2011-12 is at 15 percent, “we’d lose 44,000 seats in courses,” she said. The budget proposal that came from the state House appropriations subcommittee last week called for a cut of 17.4 percent for the system. Between 2007-08 and 2010-11, UNCG has taken permanent cuts of more than $9.6 million. UNCG has absorbed another $39 million in one-time cuts and mandatory reversions during this period.
