Kansas State University President Kirk Schulz is proposing nearly $8 million in budget cuts in the next two years.
Schulz on Monday also released proposals for more than $7 million in revenue increases.
The university says the recommendations would create a pool of money to help maintain or restore basic operations.
The proposals include elimination of Targeted Excellence programs, which directs funds to selected academic areas. Schulz also proposed 10% per year reductions in funds for the athletics department and the National Institute For Strategic Technology Acquisition and Commercialization.
And Schulz proposed $5 million in tuition surcharges for 2011, and a tuition "adjustment" to raise more than $2 million.
