VERMILLION, SD -
The South Dakota Board of Regents says public universities and special schools have identified nearly $4.4 million in cuts to programs and activities to balance the state's higher education budget for the coming year.
Board members reviewed a list of the cuts Thursday at their meeting in Vermillion. Regents CEO Jack Warner calls them a "focused reduction in administrative spending, services, and programs" across the system.
The Legislature in March cut $6.5 million from the higher education budget. The regents last month approved an average 4.6 percent increase in tuition and mandatory fees, which will replace about $2.1 million of the cuts.
Regents spokeswoman Janelle Toman says formal board approval of the $4.4 million in cuts is not required.
