The Money Issue: a guide to the Sheaf’s special financial coverage

By in News

Money - Pile of Bills

The current fiscal landscape at the University of Saskatchewan — the projected budget deficit, emails from the university president, layoffs and all-around concern from the campus community — has prompted the Sheaf to alter its regular weekly coverage of campus news, sports and cultural events and to focus more specifically on university finances.

“The Money Issue” looks not only to inform the student body on the university’s financial situation, administrative initiatives to prevent the projected $44.5-million deficit and the cuts made so far, but also to gauge student opinion on the plans.

Our financial coverage this week is separated into two basic sections: news and opinions.

Articles labelled as news deal with factual coverage of the financial events that have unfolded thus far.

Articles labelled as opinions are devoted to student voices. We hope to see this conversation continue and become more nuanced as students become more educated about the university’s deficit and the restructuring the school requires.

The Sheaf spoke to several students following the announcement of the university’s impending budget cuts. We met some students who didn’t understand the issue, plenty of students who were angry and many who felt that the university was ignoring their voices.

Please send us your thoughts, opinions and reactions to pieces published in our paper and to the university’s initiatives. Comment on our articles. Write us responses on Facebook and Twitter.

We want to hear you.
