We will (Southern) Miss U

The University of Southern Mississippi has announced that a series of programs and faculty are likely to be cut at the end of the academic year (and, yes, it has just begun).

The Chronicle of Higher Education explores the decision.

Difficult choices are the norm at colleges and universities across the country, and many of the public schools are finding themselves forced to raise tuition at levels that far exceed inflation in order to make up for state budget cuts.

Academic programs are not the only areas under scrutiny; the University of California system, for example, is looking at how it funds its pension and benefits programs.
