Programs to Close in NV
After several years of deep cuts to higher education in Nevada, the board of regents approved eliminating several departments from both UNLV and UN Reno. While legislators cut state appropriations by 6.9 percent this year, the budget was cut by 31 percent over the past three years.
At the University of Nevada Las Vegas, the regents cut marriage and family therapy, informatics, clinical laboratory sciences, sports education leadership and urban horticulture. At the University of Nevada Reno, the regents scrapped animal biotechnology and resource economics, the Center for Nutrition and Metabolism, German studies, interior design and supply chain management.
