University of Georgia President Michael Adams says budget cuts next year could include pay reductions for top administrators, including himself.

The state's university system is making cuts worth hundreds of millions of dollars this year as the state reduces its budget to cope with lower revenues.

Adams spoke at a news conference on Thursday, and said that at some point anything is on the table in terms of cutting expenses.



Adams didn't back off proposals for drastic cuts to programs like the State Botanical Garden of Georgia and 4-H. He says the university will continue to put instruction first.

He said it's possible that the UGA Athletic Association will chip in more for academics.
