Every academic program at the University of Wyoming Board will be reviewed to see if it needs restructuring or elimination.

In search for possible budget reductions, the UW Board of Trustees this week assigned the task to David Jones, vice president for academic affairs.

UW students have 118 degrees to choose. In comparison, Colorado State University offers 72.

As the only public four-year institution in the state, Jones says UW has offered as many different options as possible instead of focusing on a specific area, such as engineering.

UW President Dick McGinity says the review is one of the most significant things he’s experienced during his term as president.

Jones says the review could take the rest of the semester.
