Northern Kentucky University is facing
problems that may force the school to reduce staff, cap enrollment
and even eliminate certain academic programs.
Officials discussed the university's problems at an annual
retreat on Wednesday.
The Kentucky Enquirer reports that NKU has lost nearly $7.5
million of its state subsidy in the last two years.
Officials say all of Kentucky's public universities and
community colleges are facing similar pressures.
In an effort to save money, officials at NKU are examining a
range of options, including changes in its health care plan and
early retirement incentives.
