Kansas University officials are remaining mum about how they might handle proposed budget cuts.
"We do not want to cause undue concern for students, faculty or staff by talking about potential reductions that haven't been finalized here and won't be until after consideration by the regents," university spokeswoman Lynn Bretz said.
Last week, department and university leaders gave Provost Richard Lariviere a list of recommended cuts that could be made. But officials said they don't plan to talk about that list because it still is in a draft phase and no official cuts have been made.
The regents will review KU's recommendations during next week's Wichita retreat.
Gov. Kathleen Sebelius has said she would work to make sure higher education didn't take a hit in upcoming budget years.
The proposed cuts come after the state asked regents universities to prepare for a possible 7 percent budget cut during the next two years. For KU, that could mean $14.7 million overall cut from the budget.
