Students: UNI Dance Program on chopping block

Posted:

CEDAR FALLS (KWWL) -- As Iowa's public universities face big budget cuts, there's rumors that UNI's dance program will be cut.

There is no official word from the University, but students say they were told the dance program would be cut effective next year. The students say the decision came at a budget meeting Wednesday.

"A lot of us come to UNI for the dance department. Now that it's being cut we just don't know what we're going to do," said UNI dance student Liz Schroeder.

The director of UNI's education department says no final decision on cuts have been made.

UNI, along with the University of Iowa and Iowa State University are facing millions of dollars in cuts for its 2010 budget.
