Facing falling student enrollment and a growing deficit, Humboldt State University President Lisa Rossbacher and interim Athletics Director Duncan Robins said Friday that significant decisions will have to be made in the coming months for the HSU Athletics Department ­— including the potential for sports programs to be cut. “Without using [state] General Funds or increasing student fees, to balance the budget is an impossibility without making some tough decisions,” Robins said in a conference room within the university’s Siemens Hall in Arcata. “Those tough decisions haven’t been made yet. We are debating several things including how to raise more money so we don’t have to be as severe on our cuts. But they’re still out there, they’re still looming.” The HSU Athletics Department has run a deficit for the past two years and will run an even larger deficit in the coming school year, Robins said. –  Will Houston, times-standard.comRead More
