Irvine forced to cut sports

The University of California Irvine is looking to cut $1 million from its budget by doing some reshuffling and, unfortunately, by cutting sports. Five programs will be discontinued next year: men's and women's swimming/diving, sailing, and women's and men's rowing. Given the current fiscal crisis in the country in general, but of course in California, the cuts are not surprising and likely not the last we will see out of CA schools.
No word on how this will affect UC Irvine's adherence to California state school's equity requirements.
