Minot State University faces $1.8M shortfallMINOT, N.D. – Minot State University President David Fuller says the school is facing a $1.85 million shortfall next year and must cut 3 percent from its budget.
The university had a $2 million shortfall this year and shaved 3 percent from this year’s budget.
Fuller said the university had a 2.5 percent decline in student enrollment this year and a nearly 7 percent decline last year.
Fuller cited Souris River flooding in 2011 and housing shortages as reasons for declining enrollment.
Fuller said the cuts in next year’s budget will have to come from a number of areas, including staffing.
