UW trims 54 jobs in budget cutting

Adam Porter, Townsquare Media

CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The University of Wyoming has eliminated 54 faculty and staff positions to meet state budget cuts.

The state’s only four-year public university also is reducing non-personnel support budgets and scholarships.

UW’s operating budget is being cut by $11.8 million for the fiscal year that begins July 1 under a 6 percent reduction ordered by the governor and the state Legislature.

The $11.8 million reduction includes a $5.7 million cut in UW support budgets, $3.1 million in personnel costs, $2.4 million in scholarships and graduate education expenses, and $600,000 from the School of Energy Resources.

UW began staff and faculty reductions through attrition last year. It will not have to lay off anyone.

Forty-two of the jobs cut were among staff positions, while 12 were among faculty positions.
