Cuts Planned at USAFA

The Air Force Academy is planning a series of cuts as part of the Pentagon’s 2015 budget proposal. KRCC's Eliza Densmore reports.

The cuts would eliminate three percent of the Academy’s workforce and 10 academic majors at the school. Degrees in biochemistry, environmental engineering, and philosophy are among the proposed cuts.

Dean of Faculty Brig. General Andrew Armacost said in a press release from the Academy that the decisions about which courses to eliminate were made through deliberate discussion.

If approved, the changes would be phased in over the next three years.
