TULSA — Major changes are coming to the University of Tulsa.

They announced Thursday they will be making cuts and consolidating programs.

The plan will cut 59 degree programs.

The university says it may seem significant, but only 6 percent of their student body is enrolled in those programs as a primary degree.

TU identified 15 current programs that they plan to grow and expand - like neurosciences and biomedical engineering.

TU will also make a professional super college that will consolidate the business, health and law colleges and create a university college that all incoming freshmen will be a part of their first year.

In a statement, TU Provost Janet K. Levit said the decision was made after a review committee reviewed each academic unit.

Their goal is to support student's graduating on time, offer practical and professional training and concentrate their resources on areas that will further an innovative culture at TU and beyond graduation.

TU says they have not ironed out all the kinks in the plan or answered all of the questions on how to make the shift from where they are now to where they want to be...

But the plan will take place over a two-year time span.
