U of L reacts to provincial budget cuts

October 25, 2019

In the new budget, overall funds to Advanced Education for Campus Alberta Grants will be reduced by five per cent

President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Lethbridge, Mike Mahon, spoke earlier today about how the new Alberta budget will impact the U of L and its students.

"Any significant budget reduction like this will feel significant. What that means though in terms of the specifics I think is too early to say. But, yes... a 2.3 per cent reduction in our operating grant, 4.2 per cent loss of IMP funding for one year. Those are significant numbers if you look at our overall budget."
