Wow, no one saw this coming. The University of Florida announced this past week that it was dropping its computer science department, which will allow it to save about $1.7 million.
They cut their computer science department to save 1.7 million, while they increased their Athletic department budget by another 2 million dollars.. I feel sorry for anyone that wanted to go to University of Florida that had a desire to major in computer science...
The original article is apparently false.
Under that proposal, all undergraduate and graduate degree curriculum would remain the same and the college would maintain its brainpower and research capacity. The plan calls for no lay-offs of tenure-track faculty. Faculty lay-offs are expected, however, if across-the-board cuts are made in the College of Engineering.
Thanks to razor950 and flamingoyster for digging up more information.
