Southern University's Chancellor is concerned about the deep budget cuts that are going to have to be made.
Chancellor Kofi Lomotey laid out his plans for 12 million dollars in cutbacks at Southern.Most of the cuts will be based on performance reviews of different departments.
Plans for the 12 million dollars in cuts include higher admission standards and elimination of credit hours from certain majors like Architecture.
So far it appears Nursing, Engineering, and Business will be safe.
