Is UMD in trouble financially?

<p>With the elimination of many varsity sports due to lack of funding, what impact will there be, if any, academically?..My fear is that if my son attends UMD now, will they start to cut back on academics next..???</p>

<p>Any thoughts...</p>

<p>No cuts in academics. Quantity and quality of education will not be affected by the cut in some of the less popular sports.</p>

<p>Athletics is funded independently. It definitely won't affect academics.</p>
