Web site shows how UNLV hit by budget cuts

UNLV launched a Web site (http://www.unlv.edu/budget/) this week dedicated to explaining how state budget cuts are affecting the university.

Officials have posted answers to frequently asked questions such as "What is the current budget cut?" and "What about future cuts?"

Also included are links to documents including memos detailing the hits UNLV has taken and could take if it loses more funding. The school will offer about 500 fewer classes next year, partly a result of administrators' decision to save money by reducing the number of part-time instructors at the university.

The Web site is to be updated with information on campus budget meetings.
