Calgary Herald, April 17, 2013 - CALGARY— Mount Royal University put several programs on the chopping block Tuesday as campus officials work to plug the institution's $14-million budget hole. School provost Manuel Mertin said three diploma programs, four certificate programs and an engineering transfer program will likely stop accepting students this fall under an austere budget. "I was sick by the time I talked to people today," Mertin said, outside a closed-door budget town hall meeting. "I never imagined I would have to do this." The three diploma programs on the block are disability studies, music performance and theatre arts, while the four certificate programs are aging studies, forensics, journalism and perinatal care.
