The Board of Trustees at Northwest College in Powell voted Monday night to eliminate the college’s journalism program, along with two other programs.
Trustees voted 4 to 2 to cut the journalism program. Northwest President Stefani Hicswa had recommended the cut amid a $2 million budget shortfall.
A spokesperson for the college said the recommendation was made after a thorough cost-benefit analysis.
Journalism professor Rob Breeding is disappointed that the decades-old program is going away.
