Nationally accredited Nursing and Education Programs will Remain Part of AASU Curriculum
(March 2, 2010) On Tuesday, March 2, the Savannah Morning News included a story about the University System of Georgia (USG) proposed budget cuts. The proposed cuts referenced in the story were the result of a request from legislators to the USG to reduce its fiscal year 2011 budget by $300 million. The story contained incorrect information regarding Armstrong Atlantic State University (AASU).
AASU will continue to offer bachelor's and master's degrees in education and nursing.
"Our nationally accredited education and nursing programs are two of our flagship programs at Armstrong and we will continue provide bachelor's and master's degrees in both," said Ellen Whitford, AASU vice president for academic affairs. "Speculation about the discontinuation of any specific academic program is premature at this point."
Complete information on the University System of Georgia's proposals, including a letter from USG Chancellor Erroll B. Davis Jr. and an executive summary are available at www.usg.edu/.
