"In addition to the declaration of financial exigency, the Board of Regents
will discuss three organizational restructuring options for moving forward:

  • Create a leaner UA by assigning each university a prorated share of

the budget reduction

  • Eliminate one or more universities and/or community campuses
  • Consolidate the university within a single accreditation with shared

courses and services
