Classes were cut this semester at the University of Hawai’i-Manoa and students worried as they returned to the university Monday. According to the Honolulu Advertiser, the public university system struggled to slash $76 million from its budget, including $45 million at its flagship Manoa campus. At the same time, enrollment is up on all campuses. This summer, the Manoa campus announced it wouldn’t renew more than 150 instructors and nontenured faculty members because of the budget reduction. More than 500 class sections were placed on hold.
