RENO, Nev. (AP) -- University of Nevada, Reno President Milton Glick plans to submit recommendations to the Board of Regents next month that will reduce the school's budget this fiscal year by $11 million.

Among the recommendations are eliminating several degree programs and retaining a bare-bones College of Agriculture.

The $11 million reduction is on top of an earlier $33 million state-ordered cut at UNR and is the Reno campus' share of state-mandated cuts being made to public higher education institutions.

Glick says he wishes the school didn't have to go through the cuts and that they are painful. He presented his revised recommendations Wednesday to the Faculty Senate.

Under the revised recommendations, 27 tenured or tenure-track faculty would lose their jobs.

The Regents will consider the recommendations June 3.
