Faculty members are speaking out against cuts due to be proposed by the administration next week at the University of Northern Iowa, The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier reported. Officials are preparing the plan to deal with budget shortfalls, and say that they have no choice but to propose deep cuts. Draft plans have been circulating and faculty union leaders say that they show a willingness to go too far. Cathy DeSoto, president of the faculty union, said that current plans would end undergraduate degrees in fields such as physics, geography, religion, philosophy and the teaching of English as a second language. "The reorganization that they've proposed, if it went through, it would eviscerate the university," she said.
