OGDEN, Utah (AP) -- Weber State is facing a $1.4 million shortfall, and immediate cuts of $700,000 have been ordered with more on the way.
The school has been hurt by declining enrollment. Fall enrollment is 18,498, down 323 students from 2003.
"We need to take immediate corrective action to reduce our expenditures without affecting the quality experience on campus," said Norm Tarbox, Weber State vice president of administrative services.
Departments are being asked to trim their budgets, and some campus projects will be delayed.
