Faculty and students have expressed outrage after Portland State University, in Oregon, canceled more than 50 courses with little notice. University officials say the cancellations were necessary because the school had to cut $5.7 million from its 2013-14 budget, though some faculty questioned the move. "Any logical person could see there will be less revenue and it will make the financial picture worse for the university. It completely defies logic," said Stan Hillman, biology professor emeritus.
