The University of Winnipeg has chopped $3 million in planned spending and covered a $2 million pension shortfall in balancing a $116-million budget for 2013-2014.
The university's board of regents passed the budget Monday evening.
The major savings came through leaving $3.5 million worth of jobs vacant. Senior management salaries were frozen for the third straight year, and administrators found $400,000 in cuts in their budgets.
The university is budgeting for a five per cent increase in international student enrolment, and also expects to reduce energy costs by $180,000.
Meanwhile, the U of W continues to work at boosting student services.
