BDN Interviews UMaine Faculty About Budget Cuts

The Bangor Daily News spoke with several University of Maine faculty members for the article “UMaine faculty avoid layoffs, saddened by budget cuts.” UMaine’s Vice President for Administration and Finance Janet Waldron recently announced that UMaine will cut about $10 million from its annual budget without laying off faculty or cutting academic programs. Michael Socolow, associate professor of communication and journalism, said many of the facts presented during Waldron’s presentation, such as increasing enrollment, retention and out-of-state students, show UMaine is in a different situation than other campuses in the system, which is a relief to many faculty. The Sun Journal also carried the BDN report.
