Computer science programs in the United States will likely be under scrutiny for several years due to insufficient funding for higher education. This paper examines why computer science is a convenient target for budget cutting, which programs are most likely to be targeted, what the long term impact is likely to be, and how departments can be saved. Our own computer science program at Humboldt State University provides an example of a department saved through retooling of our academic business.
