WARRENSBURG — The University of Central Missouri has reorganized several programs in an effort to cut expenses.

The Warrensburg School says in a news release that many of the programs now in the College of Health and Human Services are being combined into a new College of Health, Science and Technology. Seven staff positions also will be cut.

By July 1, the university's five colleges with 33 academic departments will be combined into four colleges with 25 departments.

The consolidation is expected to save the university an estimated $612,000 in 2012.

University president Charles Ambrose told The Sedalia Democrat that the cuts began in October. He says the university also will focus on creating partnerships with community colleges, high schools and businesses.

May we assume that all four campuses of University of Missouri System are currently hard at work making similar consolidations?
