University faces budget cuts across the board

MARQUETTE — The School of Health and Human Performance at Northern Michigan University is facing massive budget cuts.

ABC 10 has learned that the department is reducing its budget from $390,000 to $80,000. That’s a budget of $40,000 for the upcoming winter semester and the 2016 fall semester. The school of Health and Human Performance offers classes such as athletic training, exercise science, and community health, among others.

There’s no word yet on what classes and instructors will be cut. NMU Assistant Vice President of University Marketing and Communications Derek Hall told ABC 10 Wednesday afternoon that enrollment is down and budgets will be reduced across campus.
