Iowa State University president Gregory Geoffroy says some courses at his university will be eliminated to deal with a budget shortfall. He says it’s like that some academic programs will fall victim to the cuts.Geoffroy has set a goal of getting more students to graduate within four years, and he says that’s why “core” courses won’t be cut.The university’s budget, along with the rest of state government are being cut four-point-three percent. Geoffroy says his plan for implementing the cuts will be released by the end of January. He says it’s difficult to do, but he says the university has to carry its share of the load in bad times. Geoffroy says he’s told people on campus that things will turn around.Geoffroy, who took over as I-S-U president this summer, made his comments on Iowa Public Television’s “Iowa Press” program.
