University of Florida Eliminates Computer Science Program, Boosts Sports Budget

leave a comment »

The University of Florida recently announced that it is eliminating its Computer Science department and increasing the budget of its athletics program.

As Forbes’ Steven Salzberg reports:

The University of Florida announced this past week that it was dropping its computer science department, which will allow it to save about $1.7 million…

Meanwhile, the athletic budget for the current year is $99 million, an increase of more than $2 million from last year.  The increase alone would more than offset the savings supposedly gained by cutting computer science.

Gator alumni must be so proud of their alma mater.

Maybe if they don’t win a national championship this year, they’ll eliminate their Business and Law schools, too.
