UA president suggests slowing down restructuring timeline under smaller budget cut

The University of Alaska president is proposing to slow down the timeline for restructuring the university system under this year’s smaller budget cut.

The timeline would push back UA regents’ decision on the university system’s structure to November, instead of a September vote. That would allow more time for input, according to UA President Jim Johnsen.

Johnsen presented the proposed plan at a regents’ subcommittee meeting Wednesday, ahead of the full board meeting on Sept. 12 and 13 in Anchorage.

It’s part of UA’s process to recompose its budget plan after Gov. Mike Dunleavy’s sharp shift in his position on state funding for the university system. UA’s one-year $135 million state funding cut was recently reduced to a $25 million cut for the fiscal year that started July 1. Dunleavy has said he’ll also support cutting another $45 million in state funding for UA over the following two years.
