Regents To Review Proposed Program Cuts

March 31, 2010, 7:28 AM

South Dakota's Board of Regents on Wednesday planned to discuss a report that recommends ending 37 programs and 109 specializations within majors at the state's six public universities.

Officials view the effort more as a housecleaning exercise.

University of South Dakota provost Chuck Staben says he thinks financial savings will be minimal.

Some programs are to be eliminated because of low enrollment. In many cases, schools offer a bachelor of arts degree and a bachelor of science in a program, and are to eliminate one or the other.

South Dakota State is to drop numerous specialization designations in programs. For example, journalism students' diplomas no longer would say they specialized in a certain area such as broadcasting.

Regents CEO Jack Warner says officials will make sure that students enrolled in targeted programs can complete their degree work.
