SASKATOON - The president of the University of Saskatchewan says the school is not in financial trouble despite layoffs, program cuts and a projected $3.3 million operating deficit.
The university expects to eliminate up to 200 positions by the end of June.
Ilene Busch-Vishniac (bush-VIZH-nee-ak) told the Saskatoon Chamber of Commerce that without belt-tightening the university would be about $44 million in the red within a few years.
She says the university is also trying to resolve problems with its College of Medicine, which is under probation.
