EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) — A plan to restructure Michigan State University's College of Agriculture and Natural Resources envisions a much smaller, more focused school as it tries to adapt to tough financial circumstances.

The Lansing State Journal reports Wednesday that Dean Jeffrey Armstrong will submit a plan to university officials early next year that calls for cutting the agriculture college's administration by 25 percent, merge departments within the college and pare research programs. Armstrong says the pioneering college can't do everything it once did and must focus on critical areas.

College faculty members are preparing a formal response to the proposal. The plan has met resistance from some who say it would damage the legacy of the school once known as Michigan Agricultural College.
