Members of the faculty at the University of Kansas are pressing a plan that would eliminate 42 academic programs, arguing that several of the proposed cuts are not in the best interest of the University and undermining their educational mission to serve students .

The Senate of the Ku University agrees with 28 of the 42 proposed cuts, mainly programs that are largely inactive and will not affect students and teachers if they are eliminated. But the faculty members have considered that another 14 are too important to cut, which leads to a confrontation with the administration.

Both the Senate of the University, which is composed of the staff, the faculty and the students, and the Senate of the Faculty has raised objections with a leadership of KU on the depth of the proposed cuts.
