The Lincoln Journal Star says Chancellor Harvey Perlman shared the financial news with university staff in an email on Thursday.

The amount of the shortfall is still being evaluated, but Perlman says the increase in spring enrollment didn’t provide the revenue numbers administrators were seeking.

A university spokesman says enrollment was up 1.2 percent this spring, compared with spring 2013.
