Clemson University officials say they need to cut about $2.5 million from instructional costs for the next school year.
The Independent-Mail of Anderson reported that Provost Dori Helms told members of the Clemson Faculty Senate on Tuesday she would like their help on where to cut. Instructional costs make up about a quarter of the university's budget, which this year is about $800 million.
The school is expecting a sharp drop in state and federal funding next year.
Helms doesn't expect any furloughs or layoffs. She says most of the faculty members who have gotten raises in the past three years have taken on extra duties.
Faculty Senate president Bill Surver hopes to have a proposal in April. Clemson's trustees will approve the final version in July.
