College cuts programs with low enrollment

KODIAK — Kodiak College is cutting some programs that are no longer in demand to save money during a difficult fiscal time for the state.

Kodiak College asked the University of Alaska Anchorage to stop admitting students to two undergraduate certificates: one in construction technology and one in industrial safety program support.

“When we look at the entire university system, there has been a mention by President (Jim Johnsen) about the need to reduce the number of programs across the university, and that’s our part of it. It’s a logical choice to cut something that there are just no students for,” Alan Fugleberg, director of Kodiak College, told KMXT-FM.
