MISSOULA, Mont. (AP) - The University of Montana plans to use $1.8 million from its 2017 general fund on enrollment, recruiting, marketing and communications efforts.

The Missoulian reports (https://bit.ly/2dVdH33 ) that UM Vice President of Finance Mike Reid says the school’s revenue projections are on track for its roughly $149 million general fund budget, but that the university will continue to re-prioritize regardless of its financial situation.

Reid says UM won’t cut any existing positions to find the $1.8 million, but might not hire to fill the positions of faculty or staff who leave.

UM President Royce Engstrom announced last fall that he would cut faculty and staff to save an estimated $12 million. UM has lost about 26 percent of its enrollment over the last six years, causing a budget crunch.
