Univ. of Wyoming Would Cut 40 Jobs Under Proposed Budget Plan
CASPER, Wyo. (AP) — Details of a proposed University of Wyoming budget plan may eliminate more than 40 jobs in an attempt to cut over $10 million.
The budget proposal will be presented to the UW Board of Trustees later this week.
In November, the board approved a blueprint of the strategy to tackle a $41 million reduction in state funding in the wake of the economic downturn.
The Outreach School and UW athletics are set to lose the largest percentage of their funding under the plan. UW's athletic department would lose just over $1 million, or 8.3 percent of its budget.
The Outreach School, which officials said will be dismantled and its duties assimilated into other parts of campus, would see a $500,000 cut.
